Title 1 Services
Title I is a federally funded program designed to assist students below grade level in reading and math. The amount of funding is based on the number of students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. All Title I services and programming are supplemental to the regular classroom instruction.
Edina Schools Eligible for Title I Services
Three elementary schools in the Edina Public Schools have targeted assistance programs—Cornelia Elementary School, Countryside Elementary School and Creek Valley Elementary School.
Student Eligibility for Title I Services
Title I staff, along with classroom teachers, administer grade-level assessments to determine student eligibility. If your child qualifies, you will be informed by your child's classroom teacher. Students do not have to participate in the free/reduced lunch program to qualify.
Title I Programming
Title I primarily serves students in grades K through 5, both in reading and math. Title I teachers are trained in a variety of research-based instructional methods to best meet the needs of individual students. Typically the Title I teachers provide their services to students in a small-group setting outside the regular classroom.
There are several ways parents can become involved in both your child's school and the Title I program. These include participating in an annual meeting, attending conferences and open houses, or serving as a Title I site representative. Each school site also has developed its own plan for ensuring parent involvement in Title I services.
District Title I Parent Involvement Plan
The Edina Public Schools Title I Parental Involvement Plan is designed to meet state guidelines for parent involvement in Title I services.
