The Title I Program is a federally-funded program designed to provide additional intervention and support to students struggling academically in school attendance areas having a high concentration of children from low income families.
There are two types of Title I programs: Schoolwide and Targeted Assistance.
- A Schoolwide program is
comprehensive programdesigned to ensure that all students meet and exceed the learning goals defined by state academic standards.
- A Targeted Assistance program centers additional academic support on a specific group of students – those who are at risk of not meeting state academic standards.
Schools that qualify for Title I Program funding are:
- Frank Wagner Elementary School (Schoolwide program)
- Park Place Middle School (Target Assistance program)
These schools receive additional staffing to support teachers with reading and math interventions, and to provide supplemental instruction in reading and math for struggling students. The funding supports also staff time for professional development and parent involvement activities.
For further information about the state and federal requirements for the Title I Program, please visit the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction website.
