Title I is a Federally funded supplemental educational program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEA) to improve educational opportunities for educationally deprived children. The Title I program is designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards in reading, language arts and mathematics. Portage Area School District has become a Schoolwide Program as indicated by the free and reduced lunch count. Our Schoolwide Program provides supplemental services to students in Kindergarten to third grade in Reading and first to third grade in Math.
Parents are provided the opportunity to plan, design and implement the Title I program as a result of meetings of the Parent Advisory Council, annual spring meeting and conferences on student progress.
