Title I provides financial assistance to LEAs (Local Educational Agencies) and schools with high numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. LEAs target Title I funds to schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. Unless a participating school is operating a schoolwide program, the school must focus Title I services on children who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet state academic standards. Schools in which poor children make up at least 40 percent of enrollment are eligible to use Title I funds for schoolwide programs to serve all children in the school.
Who Are Our Title I Teachers At NES?
Sandie Bowen, Lisa Summerfield, Sigrid Riley, and Caleb Keller are our four Title I Teachers at NES.
What Can I Expect If My Child Receives Title I Services?
Students who receive Title I services are "pulled out" for small group instruction for English/Language Arts and Math. The regular education teacher and the Title I teachers work closely together and collaborate to ensure that each student receives extra support in these areas.
