Title I is a federally funded program that helps schools provide assistance to students who may need additional help in meeting success at school. All four elementary schools are Title I schools.
The Title I school wide program is designed to assist all students as they learn to read and solve mathematical problems. Title I teachers are trained as specialists in reading and mathematics. While all students benefit from the school wide model, some students may receive additional services from the Title I specialist.
- provides additional instruction to help eligible students improve reading, writing or math skills in kindergarten through fifth grade
- coordinates all instructional activities with the classroom or subject area teacher to foster more effective learning
- provides a variety of instructional approaches and materials that complement the county’s language arts and mathematics curricula
- provides individual and small group supplemental instruction
- promotes self-esteem to help children reach their full potential
- encourages parent and family involvement through parent conferences, math/literacy night events, and workshops.
Parent involvement at all grade levels is key in all Title I schools. In addition to holding an annual meeting, Title I schools offer these opportunities:
- invite and welcome parents as active participants in student learning and school activities
- provide opportunities for parents to gain greater insight into children’s educational, social and emotional needs through meetings and workshops
- give parents a voice in Title I efforts at their child’s school
