How Title 1 is Helping all the Students

Mountain View Elementary School, a Title I School, continues to strive for excellence! This year our school continues to qualify as a Title I School. What does that mean? Parents have the opportunity to apply for Free/Reduced Lunch. The percentage of students who qualify for this program determines if schools are eligible to be a Targeted Assisted School or a School-wide Title I School. Schools with 30% -39% percent of Free/Reduced students can receive funds as a Targeted Assisted school. These funds must be used for the students receiving free/reduced lunch. Schools having more than 40% of students receiving free/reduce lunch can receive funds as a School-wide school. These funds can be used for every child in the school. We are currently a School-wide Title I School with 41% of students receiving free/reduced lunch. These additional funds pay for additional teacher assistant support, tutors, computer equipment, and other instructional supplies. Our goal is to provide students with the resources, support, and everything they need to be successful in our school and community.

Along with our parents, this educational partnership allows students to go places outside of the instructional walls that surround our school. Students are using tools to navigate the curriculum through technology. They are also able to work collaboratively with peers in the classroom and in the various clubs on campus. Students are learning that they can make a difference in our world by participating in Service Projects throughout the year. No matter how small, no matter how tall; when we work together - oh the places we can go, oh the people we can meet, and oh the difference we can make.
