We are accepting comments on our application to use federal Title One funds to support students who demonstrate difficulties with math and reading. Please direct comments to Mike Felton, Superintendent via email ( or phone (207.372.6312).

As we have done for the past nine years, we will use our federal ESEA/Title One money to help fund the Title One teaching and educational technician positions. These educators oversee and implement the Title One Program. This program serves as a Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS) Tier II framework at the St. George School and provides high quality, research based instruction and intervention based on individual student need. Students who do not make sufficient progress in the general education classroom, following Tier I interventions, will be provided individualized or small group supplemental instruction in literacy and mathematics through Title One. Assessment data will be used to monitor progress frequently to make informed decisions about instruction. The Title One process will also include parent notification for all students transitioning into Tier II for services and will provide them with progress reports each trimester.

Students are benchmarked in math and reading using AimsWeb and NWEA MAP Growth. Students who score in the 25th percentile or lower in math and reading on the fall AimsWeb are identified for consideration for Title One services. Additionally, we administer the NWEA MAP Growth for math and reading in the spring. Students who score at or below the 20th percentile on the spring NWEA are identified for consideration for Tier One services as well. Teacher observations are also used to identify students who may require Title One services. The Title One Teacher and Education Technician assists classroom teachers in designing, implementing, and tracking Tier I interventions.

Please submit comments by August 1 and thank you!
