Wellington Elementary is a Title 1 School

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.

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 Mathematics;
  • 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.

How are Title I funds used?

  • Currently we use this funding for paraprofessionals who work under the direction of the Instructional Coach and Special Education teacher.
    • Paraprofessionals work in both small groups and one-on-one with students to address needs and gaps.
  • Parent involvement and training
    • Please share any ideas or suggestions of how we can help you!
