Title I is a federally funded education program that works to give all children a chance to learn at higher academic standards. Its purpose is to prevent failure by ensuring that more children experience success in school.
Sometimes children need assistance to meet the standards Maine has set for all children including children who:
Have trouble reading
Read below their grade level
Have trouble understanding what they read
Have difficulty with math
In RSU#14 students are eligible for services in our K-5 schools. These schools include Windham Primary, Raymond Elementary, and Manchester School. Students are eligible for Title I services based on data which may include the following:
Reading or math skills below grade level
Reading assessment results in the iReady Diagnostic and the DRA
Math Assessment results in the iReady Diagnostic
All students served in Title I are referred for services based on a combination of factors above. Students may be referred at any time during the school year. Parental Permission will be requested for each student eligible for Title I services.
All students will be exposed to grade level content standards. Classroom teachers, intervention specialists, and Title I teachers will work together to help all children succeed in the regular curriculum. Additional assistance and supplemental materials will be given to students having difficulty mastering state academic content standards.
