Title I is a federally funded program designed to target students who might need an extra boost toward becoming a successful learner. These programs are to help at risk students who do not meet state learning goals in language arts. These students do not have to be identified as individually poor, but must be in a school that projects a rate of 60 percent poverty. Schools who possess numbers at or above the district-wide poverty rate are eligible for Title 1 funds.
At Camargo Elementary School, some of these funds are being used to reduce class sizes. Reducing class size helps provide more time for individualized instruction and meeting the students’ needs.
