Title I Programs

What is Title I:

Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve educational opportunities. We strongly believe that all children are capable of learning. Title 1 serves students who need extra help and time with math and/or reading concepts and skills. The program is designed to improve their educational success.

What are the goals of Title I?

The Title I program:

  1. Provides early intervention for students in Numeracy and Literacy
  2. Promotes a positive attitude toward math and/or reading
  3. Improves student achievement in reading/writing and math
  4. Builds students’ self-esteem and confidence
  5. Provides individual or small group instruction according to student needs
  6. Enables parents to be math and reading partners with their child

How does my child qualify for Title I?

Several different criteria are used to determine eligibility for Title I services. Among them include: teacher and Educational Support Team recommendations, parent concerns, student screening information, local assessments, and other current student data.

Will my child always be in the program?

We work closely with the classroom teacher to monitor student progress. When a student’s reading or math achievement reaches their appropriate grade level, the student exits the program. The Title I teacher and classroom teacher continue to monitor the student’s progress to insure he/she meets grade level standards.

How will my child receive Title I Services?

Students come to the Title I room for additional instruction in reading or math on a regular basis. The students may come individually or with a small group of children. Sometimes
the Title I teacher goes into the regular classroom and works with students there.

How does Title I benefit my child?

  1. Students receive more intensive additional instruction
  2. Students are provided with more individualized instruction
  3. Students experience success in the Title I program which increases self-esteem and motivation in other academic areas
  4. Students receive instruction specific to identified needs
  5. Students receive early intervention to insure they have fundamental skills to build upon

Right to Know

At the beginning of each school year, a participating school district must notify the parents/guardians of each student attending a building that receives Title I funds that the parents/guardians may request, and the district will provide in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers.
