Welcome to Title I
Title I in Middleton Public Schools
Title I is a federally funded program that aims to support learners in meeting the State's academic standards. Title I funds are to be used to provide services for students identified as needing assistance in meeting grade level expectations. Title I supplements the district's regular educational programming. The goal of the Title I program is to help students meet Idaho's challenging academic standards. Title I services are available in Reading and Math at Purple Sage Elementary, Heights Elementary, and MillCreek Elementary. Each school develops a plan for supporting regular classroom instruction for their students. Schools receiving Title I funds work to identify students who need educational support, set goals, and measure student progress.
How are students identified for Title I?
Although funding for Title I is related to the number of students who receive free or reduced price meals,participation has nothing to do with economic status. Students are selected to receive Title I services based on a number of factors, including performance on standardized tests, classroom assessments, and teacher recommendation. Title I is not the same as Special Education.
What kind of assistance is provided?
Title I services are provided by licensed staff or highly qualified paraprofessionals. Students may be seen individually or in small groups. Specific skill areas are targeted, depending on students' needs. This support is in addition to the instruction students receive in the general education classroom.
