• Ms. Chistine
    Title I Coordinator
     

    Title I is a federally-funded program.  The purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and State academic assessments.  Eastwood Academy has a school-wide program,  ALL students are Title I students and are eligible for services through Title I.   Eastwood Academy qualifies as a Title I school based on the percentage of students on free/reduced lunch.   

    The intent of Title I is to use funds to supplement, not supplant; to provide extra services, instructional materials, etc., not core requirements. Eastwood Academy's Title I program provides funding for additional staff.  As Title I Coordinator I work with teachers and staff to provide interventions to those students who need additional help in passing the STAAR.  Parental Involvement is another big part of Title I.
