Title I School

Andrew Jackson Elementary School is a school wide Title I school. The school receives federal monies based on the number of students who qualify for reduced and free lunches. Funds are used to improve academic achievement.  This designation provides support and intervention to close achievement gaps between student subgroups.

We believe that Family Engagement is key to student achievement and success. Don't forget to view our Calendar of Events for Family Engagement Opportunities.


The Kingsport City Schools Office of Federal Programs administers and supports programs that improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students (Title I); prepare, train and recruit high quality teachers and principals (Title II); provide language instruction for limited English proficient students (Title III).
Jackson Elementary is one of six Title I schools within Kingsport City Schools. Those schools include: Johnson Elementary, Kennedy Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary and John Sevier Middle School.


As a school wide Title I school, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires that we inform you that you have the right to request information regarding the qualifications of our teachers and paraprofessionals who work at Jackson Elementary. Information about specific teachers regarding state licensing, qualifications, degrees held, fields of discipline, and certification may be requested in writing via email through our Family Liaison and Title I Coordinator, Jaclyn Clendenen. We will respond to your request as quickly as possible.

One hundred percent of our teachers and paraprofessionals meet state licensing criteria in the subjects and grades taught. No teachers are teaching on waivers or on a provisional status. One hundred percent of our teachers meet the highly qualified standards for the subject and grade level to which they are assigned.
