Jacksonwald Elementary is one of two schools in the Exeter Township School District that receives Title I federal funding to provide supplemental instruction for students based upon their academic needs. Title I funds for a school district are based on a state formula that is calculated by the number of students from economically-disadvantaged homes and then are provided to students in these identified schools. The goal of Title I is to increase student performance and academic achievement.
Questions about Title I can be directed to Dr. Eric Flamm, Director of Teaching & Learning through email or phone at 610-779-0700.
Who is eligible?
Jacksonwald's Title I Program is designed to help students improve their achievement in reading by providing tiered instruction and intervention through the Response-to-Intervention (RTI) model, which is a multi-tiered approach to early identification and support of students with reading needs.
The RTI process begins with a universal screening (STAR Assessment) of all children in the general education classroom. The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System is also administered to identify the instructional and independent reading levels of all students, and to document student progress through one-on-one formative and summative assessments. Struggling learners are then provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning.
