Title I is a federally-funded program designed to help students in need of additional support services in the academic areas of reading and math. At Deerfield Community School, Title I funds are currently used to supplement the math program. This is NOT a Special Education program. It is for students who may need additional assistance with math skills. Those children participating in the Title I math program are chosen by their classroom teacher and the RTI (Response To Instruction) Team based on summative and formative assessments.
Title I teachers work closely with the classroom teachers to ensure progress in mathematics. Title I instruction encompasses essential components of age-appropriate mathematics including:
- Fluency with Number Facts
- Operations and Number Theory
- Geometry and Measurement
- Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability
- Functions, Relations, and Algebra
- Problem Solving and Reasoning
