Warwick Public Schools Title I Program

Title I is the federal program that provides funding to local school districts to improve the academic achievement of students. Title I funds are allocated to those schools with the highest concentration of low-income families. It is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act first passed in 1965.

Each school year Title I schools are determined through a data and reporting process submitted to the Rhode Island Department of Education.

2021-2022 Title I Schools:

Hoxsie Elementary School

Lippitt Elementary School

Norwood Elementary School

Oakland Beach Elementary School

Scott Elementary School

Title I Services:

School Wide Program

We have five schools operating the School Wide model.  They are Hoxsie, Lippitt, Norwood,  Oakland Beach and Scott Elementary Schools.  Schools that run a School Wide Program identify the areas in need of increasing student achievement and use the Title I funds for supports and strategies that are beyond what is sustained by the district.

Family Programs
Cameron Kadek, our Title I Family Facilitator, conducts and coordinates parent-child workshops, parent trainings, and guest speakers  throughout the year to help foster a love of learning and support classroom education.
