Student Support

Several programs are offered for student assistance.


Title I is a federally funded program designed to supplement classroom instruction in reading by improving the educational opportunities of children. We seek to help students feel successful in school, attain grade-level proficiency, and improve achievement in both basic and advanced reading skills. Students meet 4-5 times per week in a small group setting. Title I services are provided by a certified reading specialist and assistant. Cur-rently, ArtSpace is a School Wide pro-gram serving students with identified needs. Learn More
