Title I

Dear SSD3 Parents and Guardians,

Superior School District would like to inform you that we have been designated as a Title I Schoolwide school. This program is designed to provide educational services to students living in a community with an economically disadvantaged student population of 40% or greater. As a Title I Schoolwide program, we are able to provide comprehensive strategies for improving the entire school, enabling every student to achieve high levels of academic proficiency.

Our Schoolwide program has the flexibility to determine how to organize its operations and allocate multiple funding sources available to them. It does not have to identify specific children as eligible for services, which means all children in the school can be served. The program uses all allocated funds to increase the amount and quality of learning time, and thus, embrace a high-quality curriculum according to a comprehensive plan that ensures all children meet the state’s challenging academic standards.

The purpose of Title I is achieved through high-quality instruction, programming based on the use of scientifically-based research, strategies, and methods to improve teacher quality and professional development, and consolidated use of funds. Classroom teachers and instructional staff utilize data from Title I assessments, benchmark assessments, and classroom work to individualize instruction so each student is placed in an optimal learning environment.

As a parent, you can further support your child's learning by fostering a love of learning and leading by example. You can do this by reading together, practicing math facts, writing letters and lists, comparing prices, and engaging in other educational activities. You can make learning fun by playing educational games, visiting the library, and listening to and talking with your child. It is important to show interest in your child’s school day by asking specific questions and praising effort and improvement. Communicating often with your child’s teacher ensures that you are always on the same page with regard to your child’s development.

We thank you for your continued involvement in working together to provide your child with a SUPERIOR education!
