Title I provides Reading and/or Math Instruction for students identified at the local school. A Title I school must have at least 40% of its student population qualify for free or reduced lunch. Services can be delivered in a variety of ways: pull out, in class, or early intervention. Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, can be used to operate a "school-wide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. Programs must use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities.
If a student in your class is having academic problems, you may wish to discuss it with the Title I teacher at your school or you may call William Combs at 251-743-6026.
Professional Development is a major part of the Title I Program. We work closely with schools to determine their professional development needs and to locate funding for those identified needs.
