The mission of Title I in District 622 is to help struggling students develop the skills and confidence they need to fully access classroom instruction and achieve academic success.
District 622 Title I Mission Statement, adopted by the Title I Steering Committee
Title I is a federal program which provides funds to supplement educational services in schools with higher percentages of students receiving Free or Reduced Price Lunch assistance. The purpose of the program is to ensure that students in these schools have access to a high quality education.
District 622 has elected to serve its qualified elementary schools with Title I. Eight of our nine elementary schools receive Title I funds.
Title I School-Wide Programs (SWP)
All of District 622's Title I schools are School-Wide Title I (SWP) programs. School-Wide programs are Title I schools with Free-Reduced Price Lunch rates greater than 40% that design and implement a school reform plan aimed at improving overall education, while still focusing on students at risk of not meeting standards. SWP status allows schools more flexibility in using Title I funds. For example, SWP staff funded by Title I dollars can work with any student in the school, where in a targeted assistance program, they are only allowed to work with students identified as at risk.
