What is Title One?

Title One is a federally funded program for schools to assist economically disadvantaged children. Since high incidence of poverty in a school has a direct correlation with low academic student achievement, Title One funds are used to provide instruction to raise the achievement of students who are failing, or are at-risk of failing, to meet the challenging state standards. Title One funded personnel are personnel who directly contribute to the education of children.

What is the purpose of the Title One Program?

The purpose of Title One is to support school efforts to ensure that all children meet challenging academic standards and have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain high-quality education. This purpose can be accomplished by providing additional resources for high poverty schools to enhance educational opportunities for disadvantaged students.

How is a school eligible to receive Title One money?

The federal government measures a school’s poverty level by the number of students receiving free or reduced lunch. In the Champion School District, the elementary has nearly thirty-three percent (33%) of its students on free or reduced lunch.

What does Title One money do for Champion Central Elementary?

Title One money is used to benefit low academic at risk students. Title One funds have paid for the employment of 3 Title One teachers, the Leveled Literacy Intervention program (LLI) and materials, the i-Ready reading and math online assessment an after school Title One program to meet the needs of our 3rd and 4th grade Title One students, and additional Chromebooks.

What intervention program is being used with my Title One Student?

How will it help?

Our Title One funds helped to pay for a new intervention reading program called Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI). LLI consists of a series of planned lessons designed to provide supplementary instruction to children who find it difficult to read and write. In LLI lessons, texts are matched to students’ reading ability so that the students read every day at their instructional level with teacher support as well as at their independent level with little or no support. LLI lessons provide instructions of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, writing, high-frequency words, and expansion of vocabulary and oral language. Title I students also have access to the i-Ready Reading Instructional Modules that are web-based and address the same areas in reading instruction.  Title I students also have access to use Chromebooks to increase instructional time for personalized learning.
