Title I is a federal education program provided to school districts to assist in helping students who are behind in their academics – primarily math and reading. Research has found that helping students in early grades to “catch up” to their peers is the most effective way to improve their academic achievement in later years. For the past few years, our school has operated as a “school-wide” model which means any students in our building can receive this help in any classroom whenever it is needed.
As part of the school-wide model each family receives a Student/Parent/Teacher Compact with responsibilities listed for each party. As a staff, we at Nespelem School District believe that the expectations listed in this compact will help students throughout their school experience, and will also create responsible citizens. We also recognize the importance of parental support and encouragement toward academic success. Our common endeavor is your child’s success. By working collaboratively to provide a quality learning environment, each child will have the best opportunity to learn and develop to their maximum potential. We would like for you to look carefully at the items on the following compact, and discuss with your child the agreement in this compact. The thought behind this is to help you and your child concentrate on the areas that are the most appropriate. We thank you for your cooperation and support.
Our school is also fortunate enough to receive state funds to support a Learning Assistance Program (LAP). Your student may receive these services throughout the school year, in addition to Title I services.
Thank you for working with us to give your child the best support we can possibly deliver. Together, we can make a difference!
