The mission Plaquemines’ Title I program is to support the instructional program of the general fund in reading and math by providing supplemental instruction that emphasizes success in the regular school program, attainment of grade level proficiency, and mastery of both basic and advanced skills.
The Title I program further strives to ensure the well-being and self-esteem of Title I children by maintaining high expectations for their educational development and by using materials and strategies that provide challenge and instill the ability to employ critical thinking skills.
Operating under the belief that every child can learn, the Title I instructional staff will seek and participate in the kinds of staff development that will provide techniques for reaching all children, such as balanced literacy, multisensory methodologies, math manipulatives, computer assisted instruction, cooperative learning, peer coaching, learning styles, classroom management, and activities that encourage the use of critical thinking. The focus for the 2012-2013 school year will be on Common Core State Standards. These standards have been adopted by 46 states across the nation, and are designed to ensure that students across the country learn the same content to make sure that they are career or college ready.
The Plaquemines Parish Title I program promotes and encourages the active participation in the education of their children by all Title I parents.
