The Colbert County School System receives funding from the Federal government to administer programs under its mandate.  The primary goal of Federal Programs is to improve student achievement through increased parental involvement, teacher training, and student services. 

All five of our Elementary Schools have school-wide Title I programs serving our students. 

·        Cherokee Elementary School

·        Colbert Heights Elementary School

·        New Bethel Elementary School

·        Leighton Elementary School

·        Hatton Elementary School  

Colbert County School System has three high schools, each school serves students in grades 7-12. The high schools are non-Title I schools.

All schools maintain a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP).  Each school participates in a comprehensive needs assessment.  Based upon the needs assessment, the school constructs a plan to guide and support student success and professional development of staff.  To access each school's continuous improvement plan (both Title I and Non-Title I), please click the applicable school link below.
