Reading Resources
What is Title I?

Title I is designed to give students help in reading and/or math based upon the recommendation of the classroom teacher and performance on standardized tests or formal assessments.

It involves individual and/or small group help centered around student needs. The opportunity for additional instruction increases the child's ability to succeed in reading and/or math and helps the child "connect the pieces" in order to move toward grade-level academic achievement. Title I is staffed with caring and certified teachers who are committed to providing lessons to your children that help them to more completely understand the classroom material.

Title I programming is available to students in grades K-5.
