Title One Notice
Stonecreek Jr. High is currently a Targeted Assistance Program Title One Program. We
in the process of becoming Schoolwide Title One. This
change will be in effect beginning in the 2015/2016 school year.
our current program, students are eligible to receive Title One
services if they meet very specific criteria. Extra services and
resources can only be used for these identified
students. In a Schoolwide Program, all students are considered Title One
and are therefore eligible to receive any support deemed necessary.
This system still requires the school to provide extra support to
struggling learners, but offers more flexibility.
This also allows us to integrate our resources and strengthen our entire
program, thus benefiting all students.
decision to move to Schoolwide was approved by School Site Council on
October 29. If you have any questions or concerns about this decision,
please contact Katrina Wilson,
Categorical Program Specialist or Matt Kennedy, Principal.
