Title I-A Improving Basic Programs is a supplemental program which originated with Federal legislation in the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The purpose of Title I is to enable schools to provide
opportunities for selected students to acquire the knowledge and basic skills contained in the content standards and
to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children, particularly in reading.
All students who receive Title I services are selected based on multiple data points at the beginning of the school
year. Services are based on the students with the most need. Students in Kindergarten through 3 rd grade received
these intervention services during the 2019-20 school year. Staff and parents are in consultation concerning students
selected for these programs.
Students work with educators who meet the definition of highly qualified teachers. These educators provide parents
with educational materials during the school year to help students be successful. This may come through individual
and group meetings that are held during the school year, report cards, conferences, and newsletters. Parents who are
unable to attend meetings during the scheduled times are encouraged to request a different meeting time and these
will be accommodated. Additionally, parents may request information in their native language.
In the fall of 2019, 3 rd Grade English Language Assessment, 54% of East Muskingum students were proficient or
higher on the full measure assessment. 71% of those students received a passing score for promotion to 4 th grade on
their first attempt. Students were not permitted to complete the spring assessment due to the COVID-19 school
closure. All student performance data is available from Title I staff at each building and will be shared at each
building’s annual Title I parent meeting. Parent involvement and input is vital to the success of the program. The
District Parent Participation Policy can be located on the District website.
Title II-A Supporting Effective Instruction funds are used to improve teacher quality through professional
development and training, as well as class size reduction.
Title IV-A Student Support and Academic Enrichment supports student learning and safety.
