Title 1 is a NYC federally funded program providing academic support to students who are struggling in their regular classrooms. Title 1 teachers work with students in the areas of ESL, Math and Reading/Literacy. Students attend these classes 2-3 times a week. The sessions are from 45 minutes to one hour. Title 1 teachers work closely with the regular classroom teachers in order to align the curriculum.
Independent Providers – Here at St. Francis of Assisi four independent teachers work with students individually who have been evaluated by the NYC Board of Education and are entitled to receive additional support. Additional services may include academic support, speech/language services, occupational therapy and counseling. Presently at St. Francis we have the three independent academic providers as well as the speech/language provider.
