  • SIL Title I Program Annual Review Please take a few moments to complete this short survey to help inform our review of Title 1 implementation. Each year, Title I schools are required to hold a formal Annual Review meeting before the end of the school year and share correspondence of this meeting to families. The purpose of the Annual Review Meeting is to thoroughly review our school’s Title I program and inform the development of the Comprehensive Needs Assessment for the following school year. Little River conducted its overview during our May School Improvement Team meeting on May 13 and will share with the community via posting of School Improvement Team minutes. School Improvement Team will continue review during our July School Improvement Team meeting as a part of our Comprehensive Needs Assessment to help inform our School Improvement Plan goals for 2024-2025.
