Title I Information
What is Title 1?
Title 1 is a federal program that has been in existence since 1965. The goal of title 1 is to provide extra help and instruction for the students who need it. Title 1 programs generally offer smaller groups, additional teachers, extra instruction (pre-teaching/review) in reading and math, and a variety of teaching methods and materials.
Title 1 teachers, regular classroom teachers, and parents work closely together. Children are selected by using a variety of criteria: various assessments such as grade level sight word checks, running records, math facts, student grades, NWEA-MAP testing, Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCAs), curriculum-based-measurements, testing results, formative tests, and referrals are some examples.
The purpose of this program is to improve the educational opportunities of the students being served by providing additional instruction which will help them achieve success in the regular education program.
