|Title I, Part A is a federal program that serves the unique needs of children — kindergarten to grade 12 — who struggle to learn. Title I programs and services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines.
Learning Assistance Program (LAP) serves eligible students who need academic support for reading, writing and math, or who need readiness skills to learn these core subjects. With special emphasis on reading literacy in the early grades, schools use their state LAP funds to deliver supplemental services that give these students the strong start they need for academic success.
Skykomish School District participates in both the Title I, Part A and LAP programs, offering services for our students during the school day, in the after school program, and in our summer school. Our Title I and LAP programs focus primarily on grades K-4, providing assistance to those students in higher grades needing reading and math support.
