Title I:

Targeted Assistance: Title I Services at Napoleon Elementary

As a parent, you have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds. The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving Title I funds must notify parents that they may ask about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher.

These qualifications include:

1. Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.

2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.

3. The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.

4. Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you are interested in this information please call your building principal.

Targeted Assistance Definition

Targeted Assistance programs are supplemental Title I services provided to a select group of eligible children—those identified as failing or most at risk of failing to meet the state’s standards for reading and/or mathematics that all children are expected to master. Two or more academically related criteria must be used to determine student eligibility for the program. Children must be ranked and served using a compilation of these criteria, from the highest- to lowest-risk child. Many school buildings develop a process with district input, to use a standardized test score and a standardized classroom teacher referral, completed independently and not based on a test score.

Title I eligible buildings must have 35 percent or more low-income children or the same percent or more low-income children as the district’s average. Title I-eligible buildings that do not have at least 40 percent low-income children must use the Targeted Assistance program. Buildings that have 40 percent or more low-income children may implement either the Targeted Assistance or Schoolwide program.

Title I Targeted Assistance services offered by school districts include additional services beyond what is offered in the required curriculum. Typical services include: instruction/tutoring by a highly qualified teacher or instructional paraprofessional under the direct supervision of a highly qualified teacher.
