The mandate of Title programs is to work with students who need an extra boost in reading and math, and we are able to work with students in grades 6-8 who struggle with these skills. The Title program is federally funded and we receive monies based on the number of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. This funding means we are able to pay for a Title Coordinator, along with funding to support class sections in Reading and Math at ATA.
The Title department uses data from various assessments to determine the highest need for additional instruction. We call these additional services “Targeted Interventions”, “Booster Classes” or “Support Classes”. Students are progress monitored and assessed on a continual basis to ensure they are progressing and that the targeted intervention they are receiving fits their academic need.
If a student qualifies for a targeted intervention, parents or guardians will receive a letter stating their child will receive an intervention and in which subject. These letters will be mailed out sometime in the middle of October. Once a student gains the targeted skills and no longer requires Title services, families will receive a letter stating that fact.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the Title program. We welcome questions and feedback!
