The Issaquah School District's Title I, Part A program mission is to provide intensive intervention for students not meeting standard in literacy and, in some schools, math. The goal of the program is to accelerate learning for these students and bring them quickly to standard.
Those elementary schools whose free and reduced lunch rate is higher than the district average receive Title I, Part A dollars to support identified students. Students within these buildings are targeted for assistance based on multiple measures. Test scores from MSP assessments, Stanford 10 scores, Fountas and Pinnell reading assessments, and teacher observation are combined to create a rank-ordered list of students. Students are invited into Title I, Part A programs, beginning with those most in need of service. As students exit the program, their place is taken by the next student with greatest need. Students identified for Title I services are taught by highly qualified, certificated, teachers in a small group setting.
