Title 1 Programs
What is Title I?
Title I, Part A - provides opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills to meet the State proficiency standards. This purpose is accomplished in two ways: (1) by providing children supplemental support through enriched and accelerated education programs; and (2) by providing instructional personnel in participating schools with substantial opportunities for professional development.
What is Title I in the Milford School District?
The Title I program provides supplemental reading and mathematics instruction at Jacques Memorial School and Heron Pond Elementary School.
Students are invited to participate in the Title I program based upon benchmark and progress monitoring data, classroom performance, and teacher recommendation. Parental permission is required for student participation in the Title I program.

TITLE 1 AT HERON POND
The Title I Program at Heron Pond Elementary School provides supplemental instruction, in both reading and mathematics, in grades 2-5. Students first receive whole class instruction from their classroom teachers. Subsequently, Title I interventionists provide small group, supplemental instruction with the goal of improving the foundational reading and/or math skills of students.
Title I groups meet daily, Monday-Thursday. Reading groups range from 30 to 60 minutes in length, while the majority of math groups last 30 minutes. Additionally, some students participate in math practice using computer-based programs first thing in the morning, either in addition to or in lieu of another math group throughout the day.
