We have six aides that provide services for the students. Tammy Funk, Angela Jones, MaeDean Mathis, Rolland Jensen, Alberta Bianco and Michelle Gray each work with students throughout the day in helping them to become fluent in both reading and math.
What is Title I?
Title I is a federal education program under the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 reauthorized as No Child Left
Behind (NCLB) in 2001. Schools qualify for Title 1 funding through percentage of students qualifying for the Free/Reduced lunch program. PLEASE fill out the forms, even if you think you do not qualify. We need the assistance of the aides that are hired through the Title 1 funding to help our students. Schools with less than 40% Free/Reduced will lose the funding and not qualify. We have been very close to the mark and do not want to lose our 6 aides.
Title I includes four major parts:
Part A: Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged.
Part B: Even Start Family Literacy.
Part C: Migrant Education.
Part D: Services for Neglected or Delinquent Children & Youth.
Title I, Part A provides Utah with Federal funds each year to help
higher poverty schools provide supplemental educational services to
meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged students.
What are the goals of Title I?
Help students to achieve academic success in Reading/Language Arts and
Increase student performance in high poverty schools through school-wide reform;
Build teacher capacity through quality professional development; and
Enhance parents’ abilities to help their children succeed through
quality parental involvement activities.
