What is Title I?
Title I-A is a federally funded program designed to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments, regardless of socio-economic status. Funding allocations are based on poverty levels.
Title I-A funding enables the district to provide additional instructional staff, supplies and materials, technology, and professional development to help raise student achievement in targeted schools. Students in need of extra reading support are offered this opportunity through the Title I teacher and staff.
The schools with a poverty level that exceeds the district average poverty level, typically 32%, include West Park Elementary, Russell Elementary and Lena Elementary. These schools provide Title I services to students based on their academic need in the area of Reading, regardless of those students socio-economic status. Moscow Charter School and St. Mary’s Catholic School also receive Title I services.
