Providing additional assistance to students
Title 1 is a federally-funded program designed to offer extra academic assistance to students who need help in meeting state standards in reading and mathematics. Title 1 has been in existence since 1965 and continues to provide students with supplemental reading and mathematics practice that enhances their ability to succeed.
Forest Lake's Title 1 program has licensed staff along with paraprofessionals that provide additional reading and math instruction in three of our elementary buildings. Title 1 also supports eligible students at St. Peter's Catholic School.
Children are selected to participate in the Title 1 Program by using assessment and testing information. Teacher judgment on a child's classroom performance is also used.
Classroom teachers work with Title 1 teachers and para-professionals to help students reach the goal of achieving at or above their grade level in literacy and math.
