Kindergarten through 9th grade students can be eligible for Title I services. Students must meet specific criteria to receive these Title I services.
Title I is a federally funded program. Our school receives federal funds in the form of a Title I Grant. We use this money to hire additional support staff that provides instructional support to students in the areas of reading and math. Our Title I staff work cooperatively with classroom teachers to provide instruction that supports but does not replace what is being taught in the classroom.
Title I services are provided in the classroom or in a small group setting.
Our district assess' students three times a year for Title I services: Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Sometimes with even our combined efforts of parents and teachers working together, children still struggle in school. This is where Title I fits into a student's academic day, to give additional help where needed.
Teachers refer students to Title I when they are performing below grade level in the classroom. Students' classroom performances are compared with test scores from one or more of the following: MCA's, STAR Reading Test, STAR Math Test, STAR Early Literacy Test, and classroom samples. Test scores must be within a certain range to show need for additional help.
