What is Title I programming?
The purpose of Title I programming is to provide supplemental academic interventions that will help students become proficient in grade level reading and math curriculum. There is a consistent correlation between the strategies your child sees in the classroom and the interventions and strategies supplemental support teachers use to help students fill in gaps in their learning as they accelerate their learning to grade level proficiency.
Communication is the key, and we encourage your questions as you visit with your child's classroom and supplemental programs teacher.
