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.
All Title I eligible schools in WCPSS operate under the schoolwide model. This means that Title I funds may be used, with other school funding sources, to provide supports to all students so that they may meet our high academic standards. Title I is a federally funded program that is one component of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015.
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.
A Parent's Right To Know
Parents have a right to:
Request information about staff members' credentials. Ask your child's principal about how to do this and/or check the school's website for information.
Know how your child's school is performing. The North Carolina School Report Card for your child's school will be sent home after it is released by the state. This typically occurs in November or December.
