Dear Families,
 
At Lakeshore we are a Title I school which means we receive federal funding to help our students reach our state’s content standards for reading/language arts and mathematics. Title I is the largest federal aid program for schools serving elementary and secondary schools each year. Through Title I the Federal government provides money to states, which in turn provides money to school districts based on percentages of low-income students. A Wisconsin Title I school is eligible to implement a Title I Schoolwide Program when the poverty level is at or above 40%. At Lakeshore, our poverty level is approximately 56%.
 

We are considered a Title I Schoolwide Program, which enables ALL students, particularly the lowest achieving students, to reach the state’s content standards for reading/language arts and mathematics. As a Title I Schoolwide Program, we have greater decision-making authority and flexibility for teachers to help students having difficulties. Every year we complete the following core requirements of a Title I Schoolwide Comprehensive Plan:

  • A comprehensive needs assessment that identifies our strengths and challenges in key areas affecting student achievement

  • A comprehensive plan for long-term improvement, created with stakeholders and designed to address identified needs

  • Regular evaluation of our program and updating the plan as necessary

  • Appropriately licensed teachers and qualified paraprofessionals

 
At Lakeshore we use our Title I dollars to fund Title I reading teachers and instructional materials. Additionally, a major aspect of being a Title I Schoolwide Comprehensive Plan is working collaboratively with parents and we use our Title I funding to provide home-visits, an evening family event, and additional time for family-teacher conferences.
