Title I Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

The purpose of this title 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. This purpose can be accomplished by ensuring that high quality academic assessments, accountability systems, teacher preparation, and training, curriculum, and instructional materials are aligned with challenging state academic standards so that students, teachers, parents, and administrators can measure progress against common expectations for student academic achievement.

    Title I Part A Reading Recovery

    Reading Recovery is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-to-one tutoring for the lowest-achieving first graders. The intervention is used as a supplement to classroom instruction. Specialized teachers design daily individual 30-minute literacy lessons that are responsive to each child's strengths and needs. The goal is to accelerate each student's progress to average levels of reading and writing within 20 weeks.

    Title II Part A Improving Teacher and Principal Quality

    The purpose of the Title II Part A program is to provide grants to LEAs in order to:

    Increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals in schools. 

    Title III - Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Immigrant

    Title III Part A funds will be used to improve the education of LEP children by assisting them to learn English and meet challenging state academic and student academic achievement standards. Schools will use approaches and methodologies derived from scientifically-based research on teaching LEP and immigrant children. 

    For more information about the Title III English Learners Program in Lawton Public Schools, please see the TITLE III English Learners web-page.

    Title VI - Indian Education

    Title VI is a federally funded program designed to meet the needs of Native American students. Our goals and objectives are to promote and enhance positive school performance and academic achievement, reduce dropout rates and absentees, and to enrich understanding of the Native American culture. The Title VI formula grant program provides additional help for students who are Native American and are at risk of not being able to reach adequate yearly progress on the CRT's offered in grades 3-8 as well as secondary students in grades 9-11 that take the end of the year instruction test. Each student must have a Title VI Student Eligibility Certification (506 Form) and tribal enrollment/membership/citizenship card or letter on file in the Federal Programs office, and meet eligibility requirements of the program to receive services that may be offered.

    Policy 1: The LEA will disseminate relevant applications, evaluations, program plans and information related to the LEA's education program and activities with sufficient advance notice to allow tribes and parents of Indian children the opportunity to review and make recommendations. [34CFR222.94(a)(1)]
