It is the largest federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Kitty Stone Elementary School is a School Wide Title I school. Being a Title I school means receiving federal funds (Title I funds) to supplement the school's existing programs. The primary focus of Title I money is to help provide additional support for students experiencing academic difficulties. These funds are used to identify students at risk for failure and to provide the instructional support needed in order to help them reach proficiency in content standards. The Title I program targets the students needing help the most. These funds may be used to provide additional faculty and staff, purchase materials and supplies and provide training and activities for teachers and parents.
What will my child do in Title I?
At Kitty Stone Elementary School all students receive their primary reading and math instruction from the regular classroom teacher. Title I instructional assistants are available to assist classroom teachers with students needing additional help in reading and math.
Intensive small group instruction is also provided for those students identified as needing additional help. The small group setting creates an environment for students to feel successful as they work on skills to reinforce the regular classroom instruction.
