Title I and Other ESEA Services
RSU #34 provides services funded by the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act ("Every Student Succeeds Act" / "No Child Left Behind Act"). These include:
- Title IA (which primarily focuses on student academic interventions),
- Title IIA (which primarily focuses on educator professional development in English Language Arts, STEM, and differentiated instruction), and
- Title IVA (which includes facets of our overall district work on Safe & Healthy Schools, a Well-Rounded Education, and Effective Use of Technology).
Family and citizen input into the use of these funds is sought and welcomed; for information on how to be involved please contact Dr. Jon Doty, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (207-827-3932).
The most visible of these efforts to families is Title IA. RSU #34 chooses to focus the Title IA funds at the elementary grade span (Alton Elementary, Old Town Elementary, and Viola Rand Elementary Schools). Title IA services include, for example, supplemental instruction in literacy, supplemental instruction in mathematics, Virtual Summer School, and Reading Recovery.
