Learn About Our Title 1 Program

We are pleased to provide our students with the opportunity to receive specialized and individualized support in our state granted Title I program. We hope that you will learn about our program and work together with us to ensure that our students are receiving the best education possible.

What is Title 1?

Title I provides federal funding to schools to help students who are low achieving or at most risk of falling behind.

Simonton Elementary runs a school wide Title I Program. A school with a Title I school wide program, which is primarily addressed in Section 1114 of Title I, part A, is one that receives part A funds “to upgrade the entire educational program of a school that serves an eligible school attendance area in which not less than 40 percent of the children are from low-income families, or not less than 40 percent of the children enrolled in the school are from such families”. The focus of a school wide program is comprehensive school wide reform to ensure all students, especially those considered most academically at-risk, are able to attain academic proficiency based upon state academic standards.

Simonton Elementary has elected to use Title I funds to:
  • Operate an afterschool tutoring program. The program services second grade through sixth grade students on Tuesdays.
  • Provide math intervention.
    • Accelerated Math
    • Paraprofessional support

  6. Synergize

Student Section

We select students for participation based primarily on their performance on school-administered assessments including DIBELS and STAR testing data. If we select your child for participation, he/she will receive a letter from school indicating the area in which he/she needs support. Please sign and have your child return the form to school to get him/her started on the path to success.

We are very excited for the opportunity to provide this additional resource for our Simonton students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s participation or eligibility.
