Title 1 Program

Welcome to the Title I website.
Here you will be able to locate information on the programs that will be offered at Memorial School. Please feel free to browse around and contact us with any questions. 

What is Title I?

  • Title I is a federally funded program intended to support all students in meeting the State Standards.
  • The goal is to help students succeed academically and to reach grade-level performance expectations by emphasizing high academic standards. Title One offers a variety of services that may include additional support for students.  Schools qualify for funds based on economic needs. 
    • The District's Title I schools serve all identified students throughout the school day using a Response to Intervention(RtI) model and they are provided support services in addition to their regular reading and math blocks of instruction.   These services can include individual or small groups with a teacher to increase reading and math outcomes.   
    • Students are identified for instructional support based on academic needs.

Title I Programs Help Students, Teachers, and Parents

  • Students perform better in school
  • Increase student connectedness and self-esteem
  • Teachers understand the needs of students and parents
  • Parents better understand their children and become more involved in their education


How are parents involved?

  • The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires schools that receive federal education funds under Title I, Part A to provide information to parents about the professional qualifications of their child's teachers.  You have the right to request and review this information, and it must be provided to you in a reasonable amount of time.


September 2022

Letters went out to those students who qualify for Title 1 (Basic Skills ) services in a small group pull-out program. 

Language Arts-  Grades 1-3(pull-out) your child will be pulled out of class during science, social studies, or a flex period. They will not miss any instruction within the classroom in ELA. They will be pulled out 5 days a week for 40 minutes for about 15-20 weeks. This pull-out program we will be using is Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI). The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention is a powerful, short-term intervention, that provides daily, intensive, small-group instruction, which supplements classroom literacy teaching. LLI turns struggling readers into successful readers with engaging leveled books and fast-paced, systematically designed lessons.

Language Arts- (middle school)-  This pull-out 5 days a week program will be using Just Words. This is a highly explicit, multisensory decoding and spelling program for students in grades 4 and above who have mild to moderate gaps in their decoding and spelling proficiency but do not require intensive intervention. 

ELA and Math (push-in) your child will get support within the classroom from one of the basic skills teachers.
