Support at Adams - Title I information

  • Title I school teams meet with families each year to determine the best ways to work together to make sure all students get the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade level standards. The families and staff at Adams annually discuss, review and revise a Title I Family-School Compact, which is a jointly developed agreement.

    Title I School Improvement Strategies

    Adams is committed to providing an atmosphere of learning for all students. This will be accomplished through:

    • Student achievement in reading (MTSS)
    • Student achievement in math (MTSS)
    • Student engagement (Catalyst)
    • Social Emotional Learning: Character Strong

    Adams will share student and building progress monthly at our PAC meetings as well as information shared in our weekly newsletter.
