Title I Program
Title I is a federally funded program that helps schools provide assistance to students who may need additional help in meeting success at school.
The Title I school wide program is designed to assist all students as they learn to read and solve mathematical problems. Title I teachers and coaches are trained as specialists in reading and mathematics. In reading, Title I supports students in many different experiences including reading, writing, spelling, speaking and listening. In mathematics, Title I supports students by building number sense, increasing computation skills, and strengthening the understanding of shapes and patterns. While all students benefit from the school wide model, some students may receive additional services from the Title I specialist.
All students benefit from the school wide Title I program. Students who meet certain qualifications for additional support may receive additional services in reading, writing, and/or mathematics.
