What is Title 1?
Title I is a federally funded supplemental education program that provides financial assistance to local education agencies to improve educational opportunties for children.
The Title I program was established to develop competence and interest in reading and math. Students who show a need in either reading or math or both subject areas receive assistance.
The goal of Title I is to provide the opportunity for students to meet state content and performance standards in reading, writing, and mathematics through:
- extended learning time
- high quality curriculum
- instruction by highly qualified staff
- increased family involvement
Our program is developed and operated by a highly qualified staff of Reading Specialists.
Parents of all children in our Title I school (Verner Elementary) may request and receive timely information regarding the professional qualifications of the children's classroom teachers.
The Riverview School District is very pleased with the success of our students with the services that are being provided. If you have any questions about the Title I program, please contact our Federal Programs Coordinator, Mr. David Zolkowski at [email protected] or (412) 828-1800 x 2021.
