How are Children Selected for the Title I Program?
Any student who attends a school designated Schoolwide is eligible for Title I services. Hyannis West Elementary School and Barnstable United Elementary School are designated as Schoolwide.
There is an eligibility process for students who attend a Targeted Assistance School. Student selection begins in the Spring, usually late May, for the subsequent year. Classroom teachers recommend students to be considered for services.
Student selection is based on several criteria including various assessments, achievement test scores, achievement levels, and risk level for not meeting state curriculum performance benchmarks. The results of these criteria are weighted. Those students who are considered to be in greatest need as determined by the selection criteria weighted system will receive services.
