Purpose and Intent of Title I-A The purpose of Title I-A is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I-A provides funding that may be used to provide additional instructional staff, professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies for raising student achievement in high-poverty schools. Targeted Assistance Program or Schoolwide Program
Schoolwide Title I Program A Schoolwide Program is based upon a comprehensive reform strategy and is designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school. A Schoolwide Program allows the staff in a school with 40% of students identified as eligible for Free/Reduced lunch, to redesign the entire educational program to serve all students. The Aberdeen Elementary School follows the Schoolwide Title I Program
Targeted Assistance Title I Program A Targeted Assistance program provides educational services to identified individual students who have been targeted based on academic needs. Services are delivered through extending time for the services, never during the regular instructional time. The Aberdeen Middle School and Aberdeen High School follow this program.
Similarities Between the Two The state funding allocation formula is the same. Funding is based on # of children from low-income families (i.e., eligible for Free or Reduced Lunch). Any school with greater than 35% of students coming from families with low-incomes is eligible for Title I funding. The District must rank order eligible children within their boundaries which is used to determine the allocation of Title I funds.
Similarities Between the Two While eligibility for school funding IS based on the # of students from families with low incomes… selection of students for Title I services IS NOT. In other words, students are eligible for Title I services based on what their academic achievement data show to be academic needs.
