Title I and SIC Information

Picture representing Title I and SIC Information
Title I is the nation's largest federal assistance program for schools. The goal is to enable schools to provide opportunities for children to aquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenging state standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children. Schools that have at least 40% of their student population receiving free/reduced meals are classified as "School-Wide" Title I Schools. KES is one of 10 School-Wide Title I elementary schools in Dorchester Two. Since we are "School-Wide" our Title Funds can be used to help all of our students, not just those receiving free/reduced meals. At Knightsville Elementary, we have a Title I plan that provides additional literacy teachers and math teachers, programs that supplement the core instruction, professional development for teachers and additional resources that support ELA and math instruction. We set goals which we accomplish by:

*     Using strategies and programs proven by research
*      Literacy Model, Math Model, Best Practices
*     Setting goals for improvement
*      Benchmark goals, Reading goals, Behavior goals
*     Measuring student progress using criteria set in the  state’s Title I Plan
*      Benchmark data, SRI/SMI, AimsWeb, DRAs
*     Ensuring that teachers are well trained and highly
   qualified to teach
*      Provide on-going staff and professional development to all faculty and staff members
*     Involving parents in all aspects of the program
*      School Improvement Committee, Title I Committee,  Parenting information and workshops sessions
