Title I Information
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at risk students. The goals of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities to support students identified as at risk of not meeting the state's challenging performance standards, most specifically in math or reading literacy.
* Identify students experiencing academic difficulties and provide timely assistance to help these students meet content standard.
* Hire supplemental staff.
* Purchase academic programs, materials and supplies.
* Support parents and families through meeting, trainings, and activities.
The majority of monies allocated from the Title I program to Pick Elementary are used to pay for the salaries of our Title I teacher and Title I tutors.
Pick Elementary School is a fully funded Title I school. We strive to support EVERY student on campus. Most importantly, the Title I program helps to serve students who have demonstrated that extra assistance could impact their academic achievement success.
We do this by:
*Providing students with additional educational assistance based on specific criteria. Students do NOT have to be from low-income families to receive Title I services.
*Setting goals and making plans for improving the skills of academically at risk students.
*Measuring students' progress to determine the success of the Title I program for each student.
*Developing program for each individual students based on their achievement data in order to support or supplemental regular classroom instruction.
Throughout the year, PES will provide a variety of opportunities for parents and school engagement. A monthly newsletter, Reading Connection, will be sent home that includes helpful tips and activities on a number of academic topics. Our goal is to work as partners in supporting students' success.
