Essex Technical High School’s Title I program supports students using a research-based, blended learning,reading intervention program that focuses on student development of comprehension strategies, academic vocabulary, and fluency. Currently, our Title I program services ninth and tenth grade students who are reading below grade level proficiency norms. The program’s goal is to assist students in becoming efficient readers so they can participate fully in academic and career technical education classes.
Title I is a federally-funded supplemental program (grant-funded) that provides additional reading instruction to Essex Tech students who have been identified through placement tests or teacher referrals. Reading instruction takes place during seminar blocks so students do not miss core academic class periods.
