Title I Information
Title I funding is used to offer support services to students who need extra time and instruction to master grade level curriculum. Title I schools are identified through a state formula each year. All three of our elementary buildings are identified as Title I Schools; Brown Elementary, Marshall Elementary and Countryside Elementary.
The following is a brief description of the manner in which schools are identified, the target population selected, and the program implemented.
Identification of Target Schools
Title I schools are determined by federal government guidelines
Selection of Target Population
Children are selected for Title I support on the basis of a needs assessment, recommendations of the teacher, and objective data. A parent letter will be sent home if your child is identified for support services through Title I.
Title I employees are employed within the qualifying schools that are involved in the Title I Program. These employees provide supplemental instruction to meet the needs of our Title I students. Title I services may be short term or long term depending on the needs of each individual student.
Each Title I student is monitored each marking period on their academic progress.
