Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School’s Title I program supports students using a research-based, blended learning, reading and mathematics intervention program that focuses on student development of literacy and numeracy comprehension strategies along with academic vocabulary and fluency. Currently, our Title I program services ninth and tenth-grade students who are reading below grade level proficiency norms. The program’s goal is to assist students in becoming efficient in reading and mathematics so that they can participate fully in academic and career technical education classes.
Title I is a federally-funded supplemental program (grant-funded) that provides additional reading and mathematics instruction to students who have been identified through placement tests or teacher referrals. Reading and mathematics instruction takes place during seminar blocks so students do not miss core academic class periods.
