Title I

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.

Program Description

 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. 

 Program Design

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.

Evaluation Design

Each Title I student is monitored each marking period on their academic progress.
