  • Which PES students will Title I serve?

    Posted by:

    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:

    *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.
