What is Title I and How Do Schools Become Eligible? This program provides financial assistance through State educational agencies (SEAs) to local educational agencies (Woodbridge) and public schools with high numbers or percentages of children living in poverty to help ensure they are meeting challenging learning content and academic achievement standards.
Which Schools in Woodbridge are Title I? * Woodbridge Early Childhood Educational Center (Grades K-2) * Phillis Wheatley Elementary School (Grades 3-5) * Woodbridge Middle School (Grades 6-8) *Woodbridge High School (Grades 9-12)
All four schools conduct "School Wide" programs. The funds from Title I serve all of the children in each of these schools. This is possible due to the high percentage of disadvantaged students.
What Services are Provided through Title One Funding? The services provided meet four goal areas outlined in the district's consolidated grant:
Instruction and Professional Development
Staff and Technology
Parent and Community
What Specific Services are Provided? Through Title I funding we are able to provide instructional paraprofessionals in the elementary and middle schools. These paraprofessionals assist the classroom teachers and work to enhance the education of our students. They are mostly used in the areas of academic intervention. (Instruction and Staff)
We are able to fund additional teachers to lower class sizes and provide additional targeted instruction. (Instruction and Staff)
We fund a behavioral specialist at the Middle School. (School Climate)
We provide academic information through parent/community curriculum nights (Parent and Community)
Title I monies allow us to provide professional development for our teachers and paraprofessionals. The professional development provided for them assists them in learning and using research based practices in their classrooms. (Instruction)
The Raider Review newsletter is fully funded through Title I. This is the best tool we have to communicate to our parents the positive events that are taking place in our schools. (Community)
We fund partial salaries of administrators who oversee many of the services provided by Title I. (Instruction, Staff, Climate, and Community)
We are able to provide help for homeless students and uniform assistance for families in need. (Community)
Materials and instructional supplies are purchased using our Title I monies. Examples include new Reading Program resources, handwriting instructional materials for our kindergarten and 1st grades, the math student consumables for 1st through 4th grades as well as Civics textbooks for the middle school. National Geographic subscriptions were purchased for our elementary school students. These magazines are wonderful tools, not only for Reading, but also for teaching Science and Social Studies. (Instruction) We fund after school and summer programs that provide our students with additional instruction to meet local and state standards. (Instruction and Staff)
The 21st century classroom is a classroom equipped with the latest technological tools which assist our teachers with classroom instruction. Through Title I, we were able to supplement the purchase of classroom technology. (Technology)
