|About Title I|
What is Title I?
NCLB provides funding to schools through several types of grants or “titles.” Title I monies are awarded to schools based on their percentage of students who meet the federal guidelines for being “economically disadvantaged.
What is the district doing this year with its Title I funding?
The district is using the funding to support programs and services at the elementary and middle schools to support proficiency levels of students in language arts and mathematics. The funds support computerized programs such as Scholastic Reading Inventory and Study Island, as well as intervention services through basic skills. We also utilize the funds to provide professional development on intervention strategies.
