What is TITLE I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. Schools are identified as Title I based upon their school's percentage of students who are eligible for free and reduced lunches. Once a school is identified as Title I by proving economic need (a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunches), the educational needs of each child in the school building are then examined (regardless of the child's free/reduced lunch status)
The Red Lion Area School District Title I Program is a school-wide assistance program in which all students in grades K through 6 who are enrolled in a Title I building may receive Title I services. These services are provided to address students' needs in the area of English Language Arts. Students are eligible to receive supplemental instructional services and activities which support these students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in the areas of reading and writing.
All of our elementary schools are approved as Title I schools for the 2017-2018 school year, except for Locust Grove Elementary. If you have a specific question regarding a school's Title I program, please contact the building principal or reading specialist at any of our schools.
