Title 1

Title I is a compensatory program funded by an annual grant from the Federal government (funded through No Child Left Behind). The program is designed to provide services to educationally disadvantaged students whose academic progress has been impacted by environmental factors.

Supplemental reading and math instruction is intended to be supplemental to regular classroom instruction, and is not intended to replace the regular classroom experience. The purpose of the supplemental reading and math support is to provide students with additional support in their areas of weakness, bringing them up to the level of their peers. Based on the demographics of the district, schools are allocated federal funds. This information is based from the Census, and the Free and Reduced lunch program for our district.

Title I funds are used to hire additional personnel, and to purchase educational resources that will benefit the students to reach their individual goals. The Title I program in the Hudson School District is a targeted program. Students are identified for participation through the use of specific criteria. Instruction occurs in small groups.

Guidance for these programs is provided by a state coordinator. The local programs are overseen by a school project manager, who is responsible for developing the grant as well as its design, implementation, and instructional model.
