|NCLB , TITLE I, MDE, LEA|
What do all these acronyms mean? Although you may not be familiar with these you will want to know what they mean. NCLB is the No Child Left Behind law. This involves the federal legislation and federal funds that are sent to school districts throughout the state. The NCLB legislation was one of President Bush’s accomplishments shortly after his election. It is strongly supported by Republicans and Democrats alike. The Minnesota Department of Education works with your Local Education Agency (the School) to help all students. One of the ways that this happens is through our Title I program. Our School receives money through the state and federal government to help our students. We are a school wide program in the elementary so although we may identify your son or daughter as needing extra help they are not usually pulled out of the classroom but do receive additional help through extra teachers in the classroom. Pillager school offers that help through smaller reading groups and the addition of extra teacher help in the classroom for math.
The Pillager school has also applied for Safe and Drug Free funds through the same kinds of programs. We work with Freshwater to provide many programs to help keep our school safe for your child.
