    Title I 

    What is Title I? 


    Title I provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in  reading and writing.  The Title I program will provide your student with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom, if your student has demonstrated that extra assistance is needed. 

    The federal government provides funding for each state. Each State Educational Agency sends money to its school districts. The amount allocated to each school is a pro-rata share determined by the number of low-income students attending that school who are enrolled in the free or reduced meal program. 


    Title I schools: 

    • Identify the students at their school who need the most educational assistance.  Students do NOT have to be from low-income families to receive services. ANY student is eligible to receive Title I.

    • Set goals for improving the skills of educationally disadvantaged students at their school. 

    • Measure student progress to determine the success of the Title I program for each student. 

    • Develop programs for each individual student in order to support/supplement regular classroom instruction. 

    Title I programs generally offer: 

    • Smaller classes or specialized instruction-in class or pull out
    • Additional teachers and Teacher Assistants
    • Opportunities for professional development for school staff 
    • Extra time for teaching Title I students the skills they need 
    • A variety of supplementary teaching methods 
    • An individualized program for some students, such as RR or Tiered interventions
    • Additional teaching materials which supplement a student’s regular instruction 

      Shawboro's Title I plan is now part of the School Improvement Plan which is linked on the home-page of the school.
