• Title 1

    Harriet Gifford is a designated Title 1 school. School District U-46 identifies eligible schools using  Federal Government guidelines and distributes funds to those schools. We are required to dhan evelop a plan and align our resources with our School Improvement Plan. We are required to have a parent meeting and inform parents of our testing results and how we are using our funds. 

    Our School Improvement Team has identified the following priorities that are funded with our Title 1 funds:

    • Provide K-6 Students access to a second Social Worker (bilingual)
    • Provide  K-2 access to a Reading Specialist
    • Social Emotional Resources
    • Homework Folders

     In addition, Harriet Gifford teachers participate in weekly coaching sessions to enhance teaching and focus on Standards Based Instruction and Common Core State Standards with a full-time Instructional Coach
