Title I Part A, Improving Basic Education
The Wellpinit School District has four buildings that receive Title I
funding including Wellpinit Elementary School, Wellpinit Middle School,
Wellpinit High School and the local Wellpinit Alliance High School. All four of these building operate a Schoolwide program meaning that Title I funds can be used to help all students meet the challenging state and local academic standards.
Title I, Part A is a federal program
that serves the unique needs of children — kindergarten to grade 12 —
who struggle to learn. Title I programs and services enrich time at
school with customized instruction and curricula that helps these
students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in
what they learn and can do.
Eligible districts often supplement the allocation they get
through Washington state’s Basic Education Act (BEA) with Title I, Part A
dollars. These funds never replace (supplants) BEA dollars. As the
oldest and largest federal education program, Title I programs build
equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on
the academic sidelines.
