WHAT IS TITLE I?
Title I is a federally funded program designated to provide instruction for children who need extra academic support. The goals of Title I are to help children succeed in the regular classroom and improve achievement in reading and math. The program provides children the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to meet the highest standards expected of all children. Gateway Pointe is currently receiving Title I dollars to help provide materials and support in the areas of reading and math. This year we plan to use Title I dollars to provide instructional aides in the classroom, tutoring, summer school, academic materials and manipulatives to both students and teachers.
HOW WE ARE FUNDED
Title I money is distributed to schools based on the school’s free and reduced lunch count. For every child who qualifies for "Free and Reduced Lunch", the state gives us dollars to ensure all students meet the high and challenging academic standards.
We would like all families to complete the 2019-2020 Free and Reduced Meal Application. One must be completed each school year. Please be aware that you only need to complete one application per family. Return the completed application to Gateway Pointe as soon as possible. All information will be kept confidential.
