Title 1 is a federal assistance program that provides monetary support to America’s public schools. A student receives Title 1 support if he/she is performing basic or below basic on grade level district assessments. A variety of data is considered when placing students in Tiered groups (Wonders Assessments, MAP assessments, [previous school year] teacher observation and recommendation, sight words, ORF, running records [where applicable], classwork, etc). PSSAs are also a form of data that is reviewed and considered when determining student placement in groups. PSSAs are merely one assessment that is considered when determining student performance and placement in any group whether it be EXCEL, Tier and/or guided reading. A student remains in Title 1 until he/she consistently performs proficient/on grade level.
