What is Title I?
Title I 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. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing.
Title I Services at Ketterer Charter School
Ketterer Charter School is a School-wide Title I building. A school-wide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school. The primary goal of Title I is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on State academic standards.
Since it is a school-wide Title I school, all students at Ketterer Charter School are considered Title I students and all teachers are considered Title I teachers. Students will be able to receive additional support from all staff members.
Because all students are Title I students, parents are encouraged to become involved as Title I parents. The Title I program enables Ketterer Charter School to supplement the mathematics/language arts curriculum.
The following are the Title I services offered at Ketterer Charter School:
- Title I A (School-wide): This program enables Ketterer School to supplement the Mathematics/Language Arts curriculum. Math and Language Arts Labs and Study island class time are part of our Title 1, Part A program.
- Title I, Part D (Residential students only–Scatena and Middle Creek 1,2 and 3): Title I Part D Services are provided to all residential students attending Ketterer Charter School. Services are provided in Math and Language Arts and supplement the RKCS curriculum in Math and English. Some of the assessments used to determine student progress are Study Island, report cards and other local assessments.
