Title I Teachers:  Molly Broomhall and Deidre Ditton

What is Title I?

Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) helps disadvantaged children meet challenging content and student performance standards. Title IA provides financial assistance through state to the schools with high numbers of children from low-income families, for school programs which target individual students most at risk of not meeting the standards, and to local institutions for neglected or delinquent children.

Desert (Wamsutter), Desert View, Northpark, Sage, Stagecoach, and Walnut Elementary Schools have Schoolwide Title I programs.
