What is Title I?

    Title I is a federally funded program, whose goal is to meet the academic needs of all students and to provide quality education that support academic standards.  Lincoln has a schoolwide Title I program that provides services and programs for the entire school.  Being a schoolwide Title I program assures that Lincoln interventionists will continue to meet the needs of our students.  As a result, all of Lincoln’s students are held to the same high expectations.

    Being a schoolwide Title program also allows Title I money to be used for educational programs and resources that will improve our school as a whole.  Trainings for teachers, professional development, student materials, and an increase in Title I staff are all examples of how Title I money is used.  Our schoolwide Title I program also offers teachers with additional help in the classroom and higher quality interventions (which are prepared by our schoolwide interventionists).

    Lincoln’s schoolwide Title I program goal is to improve the reading/math skills of our students by monitoring student progress through the following assessments: the MCA’s, FAST, MAP, and Progress Monitoring (LLI Benchmarks, diagnostics, etc.).  If you would like to learn more about our schoolwide Title I program, feel free to contact your classroom teacher, Minnesota’s Education Department, or the U.S. Department of Education.  You can also contact Amanda Mix, one of Lincoln’s Math Specialist.  Her contact information is on the “Welcome” page of this website.  Thank you for all you do to support your Lincoln family, and thank you for your time!

Title I Activities

Kindergarteners giggle over name “labels” placed on their foreheads, as they learn about picture clues and labels shown in their new book.

Kindergarteners are eager to learn!

Mrs. Anderson’s kindergarten class used shaving cream to put Santa beards on staff members. A few added hair to Mr. Luksik’s photo as well.

Second graders know that school is cool!  

I wonder……it helps me learn.

Learn to think. Think to Learn.

Students received a cheery welcome by staff on the last day of school before Christmas break, which included ringing bells and carols.
