The Title I program in Wake County provides supplementary instructional support in the areas of reading and math. Schools qualify for Title I funding by demonstrating economic need among its population.
Once a school has qualified for the Title I program, services may be provided to any child in grades Pre-K through fifth grade who meets the school’s criteria for eligibility. Intervention teachers reinforce classroom teacher instruction, which must be coordinated through careful joint planning.
A pre-kindergarten program has been designed to serve eligible four-year-old children. The focus is on developmentally appropriate activities for children who qualify. Developmental activities emphasize social skills and learning through exploration and discovery.
The ultimate goal of the Title I Program is to aid students in acquiring habits, attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary to function as successful members of the school community. Title I is a federally funded program.
