Welcome to the Tile I Services Page
Please provide us feedback on our 2019-20 Services on the survey below:
What is Title I?
Students who receive Title I services at South Bend Junior/Senior High are benefitting from federal funding targeting students who do not currently meet national benchmarks in learning math & English language arts. For more background and details for parents on Title I services, click on the links below for flyers and/or websites.
How do Students Qualify?
At South Bend, students are typically given services when teachers or administrators see that there is more than one indication that a student is struggling:
1) Earning a level 2 (developing) or 1 (basic) on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA).
2) Poor grade performance (D or F) in math and/or English content area classes
3) STAR Progress monitoring is below grade level (typically one or more years behind)
4) Teacher recommendation (based on in-class on-going observation and intervention with the student)
In addition, some services paid for through Title I are offered school-wide to all students because of the high rate of low-income students in our school district.
If a parent has reason for concern, he/she can contact the school to initiate the Response to Invervention (RTI) process to collect and review data on student's learning progress, focus in-class intervention strategies to try to better meet the student need, and if necessary enroll them in Title I or screen him/her for Special Education services.
