We are pleased to provide our students with the opportunity to receive specialized and individualized support in our state granted Title I program. We hope that you will learn about our program and work together with us to ensure that our students are receiving the best education possible.

What is Title I?

Title I provides federal funding to schools to help students who are low achieving or at most risk of falling behind.

Ranch Elementary runs a school wide Title I Program. A school with a Title I school wide program, which is primarily addressed in Section 1114 of Title I, part A, is one that receives part A funds “to upgrade the entire educational program of a school that serves an eligible school attendance area in which not less than 40 percent of the children are from low-income families, or not less than 40 percent of the children enrolled in the school are from such families”. The focus of a school wide program is comprehensive school wide reform to ensure all students, especially those considered most academically at-risk, are able to attain academic proficiency based upon state academic standards.

Ranch Elementary has elected to use Title I funds to:

  • Provide reading intervention.
    • Reading specialist
    • Paraprofessional support
    • Fundations Double Dose
    • Just Words
  • Provide summer school.
  • Provide a school-wide social worker.

Student Selection

We identify students for Title I services based primarily on their performance on school-administered assessments including DIBELS, Galileo, and STAR.

We are very excited for the opportunity to provide this additional resource for our Ranch students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s participation or eligibility.
