Title I

Dear Parents,
Needham Elementary has made a request to receive Title I funding this year due to identified high needs in the school. If approved, this waiver would allow Needham to receive Title I funding, despite not meeting the requirements for it last year. Each year's Title I funding is determined, in part, by the previous year's enrollment numbers. Title I funds would be used this year to support additional Intervention support in Language Arts and Mathematics. If you would like more information regarding this waiver request, you can contact David Tanaka at dtanaka@durango.k12.co.us or call the Culture and Equity office at 247-5411 x1421.
