Title IA Targeted Assistance program is aimed at providing services for a specific group of students who are identified as being the lowest achieving or the furthest from meeting the requirements of the state standards.
To implement a Title I Targeted Assistance program:
- School must have 35% of the students living in poverty.
- Students must be identified and served, on a priority basis, based on multiple, objective, and educationally-related criteria.
- Highly qualified teachers must be used to provide additional intensive instruction using research based instructional strategies that will improve the academic success of the lowest performing students.
- Supplemental services can be delivered through in-class instruction (public schools only), pull-out instruction and/or extended day, week, or year instruction.
- Title I staff must be highly qualified and provide services only to identified students.
- Other school personnel and parents must be involved in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Title I program.
