Title I Program
Each school year Title I schools are determined through a data and reporting process submitted to the Rhode Island Department of Education. Title I Family workshops are offered throughout the school year to help foster a love of learning and support classroom education. For workshop information please follow the Title I Newsletters. These are the Warwick schools determined to be Title I for the 2018-2019 school year: 

E.T. Wyman Elementary School

Hoxsie Elementary School

Lippitt Elementary School

Norwood Elementary School

Oakland Beach Elementary School

Park Elementary School

We have a Title I advisory board and would love more participation. The board meets twice a year to review policy and programs related to Title I and to make recommendations for changes as needed. Dr. Anne Siesel recently attended a meeting on changes to Title I as a result of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The way we allocate funds must change so your participation this year is even more important. If you are interested or want more information, please contact the Title I Office at 401-298-4034.

Title I Preschool
The Oakland Beach Preschool is an early learning standards based program which supports every child’s joy of learning through an integrated curriculum and self esteem building, learning environment. Oral language, social/emotional, literacy, mathematics, physical health/science and creative learning opportunities nurture each child’s growth and development. The parent/family component of the program is a major focus and contributing factor in forming home/school connections. As a community of learners, students, teachers and families promote optimal student learning success. We are very happy to continue to offer two 5 day preschool sessions for the 2018/2019 school year.
