Title One is a federally funded program whose purpose is to improve achievement in the basic skills of reading and math and help students succeed in the regular classroom. Oak Ridge Title One teachers are certified teachers.
Students in grades 1 through 5 are eligible for the Title One program. Student selection is based on reading and math assessments and/or teacher recommendations.
Students who qualify for Title One service receive additional instruction in reading or math. Some may receive help in both subjects. This service is usually provided to small groups outside the classroom in a separate Title One area. However, there are times when the Title One teacher will be in the classroom with the students.
Generally, students will not miss special classes such as music, physical education, library, or art. Most students will get instruction 5 days a week. Each school determines the specific design of their Title One program.
Most children are served a full school year; although, there are times when they are exited during the year if teachers and parents agree that a child is achieving well enough to no longer need the extra help. Students are re-evaluated at the beginning of each year.
Parents are an important part of the Title One team and their involvement with their child's education can be a key to their success.
