The Board of Education enhances the educational program for educationally disadvantaged students with the use of federal funding. Title I funding ensures that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Our Title 1 Teachers work closely with the classroom teachers to plan for students’ needs.
What is Title 1 Support?
Students who score below grade level on universal assessments (STAR, DIBELS) will receive Title 1 services. Title 1 support includes Corrective Reading, Project More and My Sidewalks. Students meet in a small group with a teacher 4 times per week for about 30 minutes.
Title 1 Teachers
Our Title 1 teachers also intervene for at risk students using our RTI model. Students who receive Title 1 services are provided Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. These research based interventions include the gathering and monitoring of data and working with parents and classroom teachers.
Our Title 1 teachers’ duties include:
identifies students in need of educational help
sets goals for student improvement
measures student progress
