Title I Program
A federally funded program that helps local schools meet the needs of all students.
The Title I school-wide program is designed to assist all students as they learn to read and solve mathematical problems. Title I teachers and coaches are trained as specialists in reading and mathematics. In reading, Title I supports students in many different experiences including reading, writing, spelling, speaking and listening. In mathematics, Title I supports students by building number sense, increasing computation skills, and strengthening the understanding of shapes and patterns. While all students benefit from the school wide model, some students may receive additional services from the Title I specialist.
All students benefit from the school-wide Title I program. Students who meet certain qualifications for additional support may receive additional services in reading, writing, and/or mathematics.
Qualifications of Teachers
At the beginning of each school year, divisions that receive Title I funds must notify the parents of each student attending that parents may request information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers. Charlottesville City Schools handles these notifications on a case-by-case basis.
Note: School divisions no longer are required to send notifications to parents in Title I schools if their children are taught four or more weeks by a non-highly qualified teacher. Beginning in 2017-18, school divisions will be required to send notifications to parents in Title I schools if their children are taught four or more weeks by a teacher who is not properly licensed in Virginia to teach the class to which the students are assigned.
