NEWBROOK TITLE I PROGRAM
"Title I is one of the nation's oldest and largest federal programs supporting elementary and secondary education. More than 90 percent of the school systems in the United States receive some sort of Title I funding.
Through Title I, the federal government disburses money to school districts based on the number of low-income families in each district as determined by census data. Each district uses its Title I money to supplement and improve regular education programs offered to help students meet state standards."

Newbrook Elementary School currently utilizes a "Whole School" Title One Program. This means that any student may move in or out of Title One services at anytime during the school year based on their specific needs. Determination of need is driven by assessment data and regular meetings between Title One and Classroom Teachers.
The Title One teachers deliver services in the classroom, as well as in small group, and one on one settings in order to provide academic supports in the areas of Literacy and Mathematics. Specific interventions are designed collaboratively by Classroom and Title One teachers.
Newbrook Elementary School Utilizes the Response to Intervention Model or RTI. RTI seeks to prevent academic failure through early intervention, frequent progress measurement, and increasingly intensive research-based instructional interventions for children who continue to have difficulty. RTI is a systematic process for providing preventive, supplementary instructional services to students who are having challenges meeting academic standards.
