Bethune Elementary Title I Statement
Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools.
Through Title I, money is given to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Funds are then distributed to schools that are designated as Title 1 schools. The purpose of Title I, is to enable schools to provide opportunities for children served to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenging state content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children.
Each school uses their Title I money for extra educational services for children most in need of educational help. BET uses the money received as follows:
*To pay for specialized positions (i.e Reading Coach)
*To provide professional development opportunities at school and away from campus
*To increase our classroom leveled text libraries
*To support math and reading instruction in the classroom (i.e supplies and manipulatives)
*To provide more library books and resources
*To provide technology purchase service and supplies to help support our district’s 1:1 e-learning program
*To help teachers organize and differentiate instruction to best meet their needs as well as streamline communication between home and school (i.e Padlet)
BET Elementary has a Title 1 Plan on file in the principal’s office. The plan is reviewed at Title I/SIC meetings which are announced through the school’s newsletter and on our website.
