Title I is a 100% Federally funded supplemental education program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies to improve the education for educationally deprived children. Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards across the curriculum but specifically in reading, language arts and mathematics.
In buildings with 40% or more poverty, LEAs (local educational agencies) may use the funds to upgrade the entire curriculum of the school and their school wide programs. In buildings with less than 40% poverty, programs are designed to help specific children and are used in targeted assisted programs. LEAs and schools are subject to consequences of school choice and supplemental education services if they do not meet adequate yearly progress as determined by the SEA (state educational agency).
The Title I funds at the Northern Bedford County Elementary school are used schoolwide to support all students throughout their classes however more importance is dedicated to our reading support services. Our Title I funds also support our Pre-Kindergarten age 4 classes.
In the reading support classes, students receive valuable instruction time, in a small group setting, that allows them more practice time so they can experience reading in a fun and exciting approach. The instruction time does not take the students away from other instruction in their regular classroom.2019-20 Title I Meeting DatesPTO Meetings/Title I discussions - September 3 (3:30), November 5 (6:00), January 7 (3:30), March 3 (6:00), and May 5 (3:30)Fall Title I Parent Meeting - To Be AnnouncedOnline Parent Resources -Follow the NBCES Facebook Page for school updatesIf you have questions or suggestions to improve the NBC Elementary Title I program, don't hesitate to contact us.
