Title I Federal Program

Title I, Part A is a federal program that serves the unique needs of children, kindergarten to grade 12, who struggle to learn. Title I programs and services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines.

Targeted Assistance Model 

A targeted assistance program centers academic support and related interventions and services and on a specific group of students — at risk not to meet state standards.  In the Ridgefield School District, both Union Ridge and South Ridge Elementary Schools operate targeted assistance models.
