• Stone Magnet Middle School has joined the Brevard Public Schools’ Title 1 Family this school year. In February of 2020 we were at a 74.2 % free and reduced rate. That means that we have received $455,000.00 of Title 1 funds to help meet the needs of our students and families. Our goal is to help our students at Stone Magnet Middle School be successful learners. With the continual input and feedback from all of our stakeholders (parents, students, Stone faculty, community partners, and business partners), this process will help us plan together how these monies will be spent. 

    The Title I Vision 

    Title I provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality, enriched programs that meet the individual needs of all children, families, and staff. 

    By providing a positive, caring environment with high educational expectations, Title I ensures that all individuals feel capable, connected, and able to make worthwhile contributions to their community. 

    Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve achievement at schools with a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced lunches.  To qualify for schoolwide program status, an elementary school must meet the criteria of a free and reduced lunch percentage of 63% or higher and secondary schools must meet criteria of 74% or higher.  The Title I project serves 40 public schools and 21 private schools in Brevard County. Stone Magnet Middle is the only new school that has joined this BPS Title 1 Family this year. 

    Each participating school has designed its own program, including grade levels and subject areas to be served, instructional models, and staffing plan based upon the unique needs of students at that school.  Each school coordinates the Title I plan with the schoolwide improvement plan.  

    All BPS Students receive free lunch through December. It is important that all of our Stone Magnet Middle School families apply for free and reduced lunch for the 2020-2021 school year. By doing this, it not only helps families that qualify for free lunch, but it also helps Stone Magnet Middle School continue as a Title 1 School. We hope to keep our Title 1 status of having at least 74% or higher with free and reduced application status. If you have questions about applying or any questions about being a Title 1 School, I welcome you to contact me,
