Title I is a federally-funded program that offers assistance to students in the area of Reading and/or Math. Title I funding is based on the poverty level within the school.
Our Title I programming utilizes highly qualified teachers and tutors provide extra help in the areas of reading and math for students who score below the proficient levels on State mandated Achievement Tests, classroom assessments, observational surveys, *Discovery Education CORE Assessments (DECA) and/or teacher referral.
All Buckeye Local Schools buildings K-12 qualify for a Title I School-wide Program.
The Buckeye Local Schools Title I programming serves students in all buildings; Kingsville and Ridgeview Elementary (GR. K-5 students), Braden Middle School (GR 6-8 students), Edgewood High School (GR 9-12 students). This means that all students in these buildings of service are considered Title I students. That does not mean that all students will receive extra help; however, it gives our staff more flexibility in helping all the students if and when a student may need help. Our staff will still identify the students most in need of help, and they will be our priority, but any student may receive an extra boost, if needed.
