Title I Program
Title I is a program that provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards.
Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) is a School Wide Title I school. The goal of the schoolwide Title I program is to improve the entire educational program in a Title I school, which would result in improving the academic achievement of ALL students, particularly the lowest-achieving students.
Please view this year's Title I Documents on this page for more information.
We DO NOT have the designation status of Priority, Focus, or Title I Alert.
Additional information about the Title I Program can be found on the Georgia Department of Education’s website.

McKinney-Vento (Homeless) Act and Migrant Education
McKINNEY – VENTO ACT
GCA participates in the education of homeless students by providing specific support and supplies to help with their education. A “homeless” student is any student who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This could mean that a child is sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship; is living in motels, etc. due to the lack of alternative accommodations; is living in emergency or transitional shelters; or is awaiting foster care placement. If you are currently experiencing homelessness and are in need of assistance, please contact Barbara Stevens, our Family Resource Coordinator and Homeless/Migrant Liaison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM
GCA participates in the Migrant Education Program (MEP). Migrant students in GCA are also provided additional support and supplies to help with their education. GCA receives the names of migrant students from the MEP regional office. If you would like more information, please contact Barbara Stevens, our Family Resource Coordinator and Homeless/Migrant Liaison at email@example.com.

Right to Know
At Georgia Cyber Academy, we are very proud of our teachers. We feel they are ready for the coming school year and are prepared to help your child do their best in school. As a Title I school, we are required by federal law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), to let you know about your child’s teachers’ qualifications. It is your right to request the following information about your child’s teachers’ training credentials:
- Whether the teacher met the state requirements from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for certification for the grade level and subject area which they teach;
- Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other temporary status through which Georgia qualifications or certification criteria have been waived;
- What undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration; and
- Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
Please know that our staff is committed to helping your child reach his or her highest academic potential throughout their school career. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled and are providing quality instruction to your child.
If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teachers’ qualifications, please contact us at 404.334.4790 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
