What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program that is intended to support all learners and to ensure that all students meet or exceed the state academic achievement standards. The goal is to help students succeed academically, close learning gaps, and help students achieve their learning goals.
A Title I Teacher, also known as an Academic Interventionist, will work closely with students and their respective teachers in order to help children experience success in school. In addition to their regular English Language Arts and Mathematics blocks, the Academic Interventionist will provide individual or small group personalized instruction in reading, writing, and math to increase learning outcomes in those areas. Students are identified for instructional support based on academic needs. All students are eligible for Title I services based on current performance levels and demonstrated growth throughout the school year.
Title I is NOT a special needs program. The program offers Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) to remediate or provide extra help to bring the student up to grade level.
Title 1 is Tier 2 Interventions which is Title 1 small-group instruction based on specific skill needs
What is Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)?
Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) provides supplemental academic support based on specific skill needs. Your child will not lose any instructional time, but will receive the time and attention of another certified teacher working one on one or in a small group setting.
