Title I Programming


Since 1965 and the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I has provided a source of federal funding to America’s schools. Based on local poverty data and demographics, Title I formulas determine the funding allocation for Maine districts. Those funds allow Title I schools to provide supplemental instructional services and resources to assist students in achieving local learning goals and targets.

There are two models for Title I services, targeted assistance and school wide, allowed under the 2015 “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA). All three of Gorham’s K-5 Schools operate a targeted assistance model.

Only identified students receive intervention in a targeted assistance model and the intervention must be supplemental to the school’s regular education program. Among the required criteria for operating a targeted assistance model are the use of scientifically research based instructional practices, provisions to increase parental involvement, and the assignment of highly qualified teachers to instructional settings serving eligible students.

Parent and school connections are an important component of our targeted assistance program. Annually, schools hold parent teachers conferences. However, conferences are available to parents during the year at mutually convenient times.

The Gorham School Department believe that parents play a primary role in accelerating the achievement of their children. We encourage parent participation of all children in activities and conversations that will enhance the home school relationship, will extend the ability of parents to support academic opportunities, and will encourage involvement in their child’s learning. Parents are encouraged to contact the school to review opportunities for home-school connections.
