Title 1 Policy
Title I is a federally funded program designed to provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state’s student performance standard. Title I originated as part of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 and is now associated with the “No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB)” passed by Congress in 2002. Title I programs can provide supplemental instruction in reading, math, science, and social studies. These programs use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.
A school is selected as a Title I school on the basis of the number of students within its boundaries who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals. Startzville Elementary School (STZES) is a school-wide Title I program so any student may participate in Title I programs based on their academic need.
At STZES, our Title I funding provides for two Campus Instructional Coaches (CICs) who work with individual students or groups needing additional academic support, as well as a Literacy Library and part-time paraprofessional to coordinate our reading tutor program. We also have a Family Resource Center (FRC), which is maintained and operated by a Family Engagement Associate (FEA).
As part of Title I requirements, these guidelines are reviewed and/or revised annually by a group of staff, community members, and parents. In accordance with federal law, these guidelines will be translated and provided to families into the language that our parents/families understand.
