LCPS Mission: The Las Cruces Public Schools, in partnership with students, families, and the community, provides a student-centered learning environment that cultivates character, fosters academic excellence, and embraces diversity.

Title I

 Title I funds provide supplemental educational support for children who are failing or at-risk of failing to meet the state’s academic standards. Title I staff collaborate with the LCPS Department of Instruction, other departments and schools to plan, develop, and implement research-based instructional practices/programs that enhance and support the achievement of Title I students.

Programs and Services

Reading Instruction – Title I schools have certified reading specialists and educational assistants who provide supplemental literacy instruction for individual or small groups of educationally at-risk students. Instruction typically occurs in 20-90 minute sessions through an in-class model or in a lab setting. Many teachers incorporate the use of computer assisted instruction as part of their overall program.

Math Instruction – Title I schools who have identified math to be a school priority provide supplemental math instruction for individuals or small groups of at-risk students in sessions of 20-90 minutes. Instruction most often occurs through educational assistants who work under the direct supervision of a certified teacher; however, some schools utilize Title I funds for a certified math teacher.

Neglected/Delinquent (N & D) Institution Services – Title I support is provided at four N & D sites. Title I support is provided through tutorial sources based on the individual needs of the students for one hour, Monday through Thursday at the FYI Shelter and the FYI Group Homes. Title I supports the district program at the Doña Ana Juvenile Dentention Center with materials and supplies, and an educational assistant. Title I funds an educational assistant position and provides materials and supplies for the Mesilla Valley Hospital’s Del Rey High School.

Selection of Title I Schools

Schools are eligible to receive Title I services if they are in a low income area. Identification of Title I schools is based on the number of students in a school who qualify for free or reduced price lunches.
