What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program providing supplemental services in public and private schools. Programs vary in different communities.
Pittsburg's program provides support for students in reading and math. There are two types of programs offered—Targeted Assistance Programs and Schoolwide Programs.
A Targeted Assistance Program is offered at the Pittsburg. Students are referred by their teachers to receive Title I services and are assessed by the Title I Staff.
What Is The Goal?
The purpose of the program is to give children extra support in reading, language, and math in order to meet the state’s College and Career Ready Standards.
What is Taught?
The kindergarten program actively involves the students in reading readiness skills such as letter identification, sound/symbol association, sight words and writing skills, and math skills.
The program in grades 1-3 stresses learning to read, building basic reading strategies and skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension, and math.
In grades 4-6, the program focuses on reading to learn, refining vocabulary, comprehension, critical thinking, and the application of these skills to the content areas and math.
How are Parents Involved?
An important part of the program is to involve parents in their child’s education.
Title I is represented at Parent Information Meetings held in October. Information regarding testing, Priority, and Focus Schools, District Report Card, Parents' Right to Know, and School/District Parent Policies is available those nights. If unable to attend, information is available at the specific schools.
An annual meeting is held in the Spring. Parents from each school are invited to attend, help plan, design, and evaluate the program. Please get in touch with the school if you would like to serve on this council. The Title I Schools host two Open Houses a year, and parental participation is encouraged.
We encourage input from our parents about the program. Parents may contact the schools directly to inquire about services and materials.

Accountability: District and School ESSA Report Cards
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires every State and District to publish a “report card” that provides parents and the public with important information on State, district, and school performance and progress.
More information on state and local report cards is available in this Parent Guide to State and Local Report Cards from the US Department of Education.
To view the report card for the Pittsburg School or for any of our schools, visit the NH Department of Education's School and District Report Card homepage, select "Pittsburg School" or one of our schools from the "Select a School or District" dropdown menu and a year from the "Select Year" dropdown menu and then click on "View Report."
