Title I: 

Title I is a federally funded program designed to strengthen core programs in school districts by providing support services to selected students in order to achieve state standards.  The specific instructional programs implemented are scientifically research-based, and serve to support rather than supplant current instructional practice.  The key mission of the program is to enable participating students to achieve proficiency in the learning standards outlined in the state curriculum frameworks.  Dover-Sherborn's Title I program is embedded within the

Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) framework. It is a structure for providing academic and social-emotional support to students by identifying those who need an extra boost of instruction early and quickly intervening. Within this system, all students receive high-quality instruction in their classrooms.
