Title-1 Services in New Plymouth Schools provide all children the opportunity for fair, equitable, and high quality education
 
New Plymouth Elementary is a school wide Title-1 model. Instructional assistants supervised by teachers can provide extra practice and reteaching to any student. Most assistance in done in class supporting the students as the teacher teaches. In some instances students receive help in small focus groups. This highly effective model has resulted in over 90% of our students in grades K-3 becoming proficient readers as measured by the Idaho Reading Indicator. 
 
New Plymouth Middle School is a targeted assistance Title-1 model. The principal, counselor and teachers prioritize students based on need. Students receive support in class from a certified instructional assistant while the teacher is providing instruction or during independent practice.
 
Please contact Whitney Cowgill at 208-278-5788 or by email cowgillw@npschools.us if you have questions about Title-1 services.
