Title 1


Title 1 is a federally-funded program that provides financial assistance to schools with high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet state standard. Title 1 funds are used in Wilbur to provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help children master grade level curriculum and meet state standards in core academic subjects. We have recently adopted a schoolwide Title 1 model, which means that all students are eligible to receive extra help through our program. Students are identified for help based on regular benchmark testing, teacher recommendations, and the SBAC state test results.

The Wilbur Title 1 program holds an annual parent informational meeting in the fall, which all parents are welcome to attend. We are fortunate to have two Washington Reading Corps staff members who work in conjunction with the Title 1 program to provide extra reading support for students K-4. If you have any questions or feel like your child would benefit from extra academic services, please contact Jaime Reister.
