What is Title I?
It's a federal program to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. Title I resources are directed toward students who need them most. The program helps not only students to do better in school and feel better about themselves, it also helps teachers understand the needs and concerns of students and parents. Through the school-parent compact, progress reports, and family nights, parents are able to better understand their child and be more involved in the child's education.
How does Title I help the children?
Title I schools work to set goals for improvement for each child identified for services. Programs are developed that add to the regular classroom instruction.Students receive extra instruction in a small group setting. Student progress is monitored and measured using standards set the Title I plan.
