What is Title I?
Hunter GT / AIG Magnet Elementary School is a Title
I Focus School. 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. At Hunter, services are provided to students in grades
Pre-K through fifth grade who meet our school’s criteria for eligibility.
Intervention teachers reinforce classroom teacher instruction, which must be
coordinated through careful joint planning. Focus
Schools are identified as a result of the achievement level of “in-school gaps
between the highest achieving and lowest achieving subgroups” in terms of
proficiency (reading/math) over a number of years, or schools with subgroup
proficiency scores less than 50% over a number of years.
