Title I Planning Week
All parents are invited to participate in the annual Title I Planning Week at Hartwell Elementary, North Hart Elementary, South Hart Elementary, and Hart County Middle School. These schools throughout the system receive Title I funds.
Parents will have the opportunity to provide input on the school’s Schoolwide Plan, Parent/Family Engagement Plan, and the School Compacts.

We need parents to participate with school staff members on the last 3 days (June 7th, 8th, and 9th) of the Planning Week from 8:30 – 3:30. Please call or email the school to inform the principal or assistant principal as to what day(s) you can participate.
