Title 1

Title I schools are Hilltop Elementary and Tainter Elementary. We integrate Federal, State, and local services to provide a comprehensive instructional design strategy that helps every student achieve high levels of academic success.

This comprehensive system of support includes classroom instruction that is standard-based and personalized to challenge each learner. Support includes a literacy coach, math coach, bilingual teacher, reading interventionists, math interventionists, special education teachers, gifted and talented resources who all work collaboratively with the classroom teacher to ensure academic growth for every child.

The overall purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.  The grant contains provisions for ensuring that children who are disadvantaged enrolled in private schools also benefit from the academic enrichment services funded with Title I, Part A funds.
