Title 1 Information
What is Title I?
A Schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school; in effect, reaching all students, including those who are low-achieving. To be eligible for a Schoolwide program, schools must have a poverty level of at least 40%, unless a school has been identified by the State Education Agency as a Priority or Focus school. Title I Priority and Focus schools or Title I-eligible Priority and Focus schools that are not operating a Title I Schoolwide Program have the option to begin doing so immediately since the LEA or CÃ‚Â³S will be implementing interventions consistent with the Turnaround Principles.
Title I funds are used to supplement the amount of funds or services that would, in the absence of Title I funds, be made available to the school. Funds may not be used to fund programs or activities mandated by state, local or Federal law; to fund programs that were paid for in previous years with state and/or local funds; or, to provide the same programs or activities offered at non-Title I schools or to students not identified for Title I in the district. A Schoolwide program at schools that have not been identified as Priority or Focus requires one year of planning and one comprehensive site plan for each Schoolwide site. The comprehensive Schoolwide plan must be reviewed and revised annually.
Robin Hill School utilizes the Schoolwide Program to provide tutoring to students that are having difficulties. Our tutor is a certified teacher and works with individuals, small groups, or whole classrooms. This tutor is employed full time and is available to all students.
