2. What is Title 1?
Welcome to the RPS Title 1 Annual Meeting!
As a Title 1 Distinguished School, the goal is to provide instructional services and activities which support students in meeting the state's challenging performance standards.
Title 1 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides financial assistance to state and local education agencies to meet the needs of children based on the number of free and reduced lunch counts.
Title 1 is a school wide program with a purpose to improve the entire educational program at RPS. This should result in improving the academic achievement of all students, particularly the lowest achieving students. By law, the school system will ensure that strong strategies are in place to build capacity in parents as partners, and to support parents in attaining high student achievement in class, and at home.
School wide Goals
Our school wide program goals are to increase the reading and math benchmark scores at or above grade level by 3% between fall and spring testing.
We will work to achieve this goal by providing support to children such as a reading and math interventionist, computer and technology software to support reading and math instruction, and monitoring student progress throughout the year.
3. Title 1 Budget
- smaller classes or special instructional spaces
- additional teachers and paraprofessionals
- opportunities for professional development for school staff
- a variety of supplementary teaching methods
- an individualized program for students
- additional teaching materials which supplement their regular instruction
- parent and family engagement in children's' education
At RPS, we use our Title 1 funds to provide:
- educational interventionist for students
- academic coach for teachers
- parent involvement coordinator and parent resource room for parents
4. Professional Qualifications
- whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject being taught.
- whether the teacher received and emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived
- what undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds
- you may also ask whether your child received help form a paraprofessional, and information about their qualifications
5. Student Assessment Information
At Ringgold Primary, our students are assessed several times a year to ensure they are learning the state adopted standards from the Georgia Standards of Excellence. Results from the various assessments are used to identify those students who are not mastering the standards and to provide teachers with feedback about instruction. As a whole, the data gathered from these tests help our school identify our strengths and our weaknesses so that we can establish priorities and goals in planning our educational programs.
Currently, RPS administers the following assessments:
GKIDs for Kindergarten
MAPs (Reading & Math) for K-5
