Title I & Learning Assistance Program

​​Do you have a student who needs extra academic support? Looking for ways to stay involved with your student's progress? Title I offers opportunities for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines.

Title I, Part A​ is a federally-funded program, part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), that serves the needs of children – Kindergarten to Grade 12, identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state's performance standards in Mathematics, Reading, and Writing.  Title I provides students with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom and serves students in elementary and secondary (middle and high) schools who have demonstrated extra assistance is needed. Title I also serves students who attend private schools.

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on December 10, 2015, which will be fully operational in school year 2017-2018. For more information on what the ESSA Consolidated Plan is and how it will be structured, you can visit the Every Student Succeeds Act page on the OSPI website.

The Learning Assistance Program (LAP)​ is Washington's state-funded program providing additional academic support to eligible students. Eligible students are those achieving below grade level on assessments, or who need readiness skills for core subjects. Special emphasis on reading literacy in the early grades, LAP funds are used to deliver supplemental services that give our students the strong start they need for academic success.


Extended Learning Programs​

These supports include a broad range of programs that provide children with academic interventions, enrichment and/or supervised activities beyond the traditional school day, and in some cases, beyond the traditional school year. Many schools offer extended learning programs as a strategy for improving or enhancing student achievement, and for students who need extra support to be successful academically. What happens before and after school can be as important as what happens during the school day.

Family Resources

As part of the district’s goals, partnerships are supported through Title I by providing opportunities to work with our parents, the community and promoting staff development. Such opportunities include Parent Involvement, Professional Development, and the Homeless Student Assistance Program​

Parents can influence the success of thier student in school more than any teacher or federal program. Research shows that how well students do in school depends a great deal upon how much thier parents get involved in their education. The Title I program supports our schools Parent Invovlement activities to expand on Parent Involvement.
