Title I is a federally funded educational program that bridges the gap between low-income students and other students in reading and/or mathematics. Title I provides instructional support in addition to classroom instruction. Several factors are considered when determining student eligibility for Title I instructional support including assessment scores, in-class performance, and teacher recommendations. Title I support is provided in the classroom as well as in small group settings outside the classroom. Title I teachers collaborate with classroom teachers to align support with classroom instruction.
Parent involvement is a vital component of the Title I program. One of the most important contributors to a student's academic achievement is their parent's involvement in their education. Title I staff can provide educational games to play with your student at home, take home books to read, and various ideas to assist you when working with your child at home. The Parent Involvement Facilitator is available to support connections between home and school.
