11 Single Plan for Student Achievement Title 1 funding for the year will be allocated to reducing class size in 6th Grade English Language Arts, by purchasing a partial teacher FTE. Reducing class size will allow the teachers the ability to provide more targeted instruction as related to the Common Core Standards. This will also help to meet the needs of our diverse group of learners.
