Title I News
I is the name of the largest federally funded aid program to schools
in our country. The goal of Title I is a high quality education for
every child, so the program provides extra instruction and support to
children who most need it. In our district these are the students
who are most at-risk of not meeting state minimum competency levels.
Title I funds are targeted at schools with high poverty levels, but
students do not have to be from low-income families to be helped.
Title I is not a
special education program. It is a supportive program of remedial
and/or early intervention education. We use the funds in our
district to provide services in reading and math. There is a special
emphasis on early intervention. We believe that helping children in
the primary grades will prevent bigger problems later on.
