Title IA, is a Federal program that provides grant money to state and local educational agencies to meet the needs of children who require additional help to learn.

The goal of Title IA is to provide additional instructional support children so that they may meet grade level learning standards. Title IA may provide additional teachers, smaller support classes, parent activities and resources, professional development for school staff, and other support services.

Schools qualify for Title IA funds based on the percentage of children who qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program. In RSU 1, three of our elementary schools are supported by Title IA funds: Dike Newell School, Fisher Mitchell School and Phippsburg Elementary School.

The EASA Report Cards for Maine schools are made available at the Maine Department of Education website.  You can view them at this link: Maine DOE EASA Report Cards
