Title 1 Services in CPS

Title 1 is a supplemental program, meaning it provides students at the elementary level with extra educational support beyond the general classroom program. 

Title 1 is a targeted assistance program for the elementary schools and students most in need.  Luce and Hansen Elementary Schools are designated as Title 1 schools.  Each year, we reevaluate the data to determine which schools and students would benefit from additional supports.

What do Title 1 Reading Tutors do at the elementary level?

Title I reading tutors support teachers in the ELA classroom. They work with students who receive Title 1 services, guiding them in small reading groups or helping them complete literacy assignments.

Title I Reading Tutors also work with children in small groups outside of the classroom during the intervention block. This block is a time during which no new content is introduced in the classroom; children have the opportunity to gain extra academic support where it is needed.
