Bedford School District Title 1 Program 

Two schools in the Bedford School District currently receive program funding through Title I, Part A. Memorial Elementary School and McKelvie Intermediate School are designated as Title 1 Targeted Assistance schools. Title 1 funds are used to provide opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills to meet the State of New Hampshire proficiency standards.

This purpose is accomplished in two ways. First, by providing supplemental instructional support through enriched and accelerated education programs. A selection process is used to determine which students would benefit from Title 1 supported supplemental instruction on the basis of academic need. This instructional support is provided in addition to their participation in regular classroom core instruction. Parents are contacted, informed about the services available, and encouraged to give permission for their children to participate.

The second way Title 1 funds are used to enhance student learning is by providing Title 1 instructional staff with professional development to enhance their skills in meeting the needs of their students. Title 1 staff are supported and supervised at the building level by administration.

The New Hampshire Department of Education site gives comprehensive information about the federal law governing Title I. Individual schools provide information specific to the program at each site.

SAU 25 Title I Project Manager, Checker Hansen oversees the program in cooperation with the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction. Mrs. Hansen can be reached at (603) 310-9100 x 4421 or The District office phone number is (603) 472-3755
