Title I and Title I Like Reading Program

What is ESEA TITLE I? 

ESEA - The Elementary and Secondary Education Act is the largest Federal Aid Program for our nation’s schools. State Educational Agencies (SEAs) send the money to school districts based on the number of low-income families. The purpose of Title I is to provide all children with an opportunity to receive fair, equitable, and a high-quality education. The program serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Nearly every school district participates. Title I also serves children at non-public schools.

Title I for our district is a supplemental program specifically designed for those students who are experiencing difficulty in reading. The program at Shaler Area is available for students in grade one through grade three. 

Title I instruction is individualized and provided via small groups in addition to the regular classroom instruction.

The schools serviced by Title I are: 

  • Reserve
  • Marzolf

What is the TitleI-Like program?

“Title I-Like” is a provision in the Title I law that permits districts to use district and state funds to provide remedial services to children in schools not serviced by Title I.

In order to use the Title I-Like concept, a district must follow the intent of the Title I law in the ineligible buildings. This program's format is parallel to the Title I Program.

The school serviced by the Title I-Like program is Scott Primary.

What is the goal of Title I?

The goal is to provide each child with the necessary skills, reinforcement, encouragement, and confidence to insure continuous development and interest in, not just reading, but in all the content areas. It is our expectation to have each child feel comfortable and excited about learning in the regular classroom and learning in general.
