Title I Program

Title I is the federal government’s largest federal assistance program for elementary and secondary schools. It is a program that provides help to those schools and school districts that serve low income students as well as students who are in need of improving their academic achievement in basic subjects. It encourages families to participate in the education of their children.

Title I programs are tailored initiatives implemented across all North Bergen Elementary  schools, each designed to address specific academic needs and foster holistic student development. These programs often encompass a range of extended educational opportunities, including interventionist support through the New Jersey Tiered System of Supports (NJTSS), Saturday programs, and workshops aimed at empowering parents to actively engage in their children's education at home.

The interventionist team plays a pivotal role within the Title I framework, collaborating closely with educators and students to identify learning gaps and implement targeted interventions aligned with NJTSS guidelines. These interventions are designed to support students who require additional assistance, ensuring they receive the necessary resources and strategies to excel academically.

Additionally, the Saturday programs offer supplemental learning experiences, providing students with opportunities for enrichment, reinforcement of key concepts, or targeted support in specific subject areas. These sessions often facilitate a more personalized approach to learning, catering to individual student needs.

Moreover, workshops tailored for parents serve as a platform to equip families with valuable tools and insights. These sessions offer guidance and resources to enable parents to actively participate in their children's educational journey, empowering them to assist with homework, reinforce learning concepts, and foster an environment conducive to academic growth at home.

By combining these diverse components, the Title I program aims to create a comprehensive support system that not only addresses academic challenges but also promotes collaboration between educators, students, and families, fostering a holistic approach to learning and student success.
