Title I/Learning Assistance Program
Learning Support Programs (LSP): Battle Ground Public Schools support students struggling to meet the state’s academic standards and graduation requirements. The district receives grant funding from the state and federal governments for this goal. Title I and the Learning Assistance Program (LAP) are two of the programs offered in our district by Learning Support Programs.
The primary focus of the Title I/LAP program is on early reading intervention in grades K-4. We also offer assistance for middle and high school students.
What is Title I? : Title I was introduced under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 and was augmented by the 2001 “No Child Left Behind” Act. This program provides financial assistance to public schools with high numbers or percentages of low income children to help ensure that all students meet state academic content and achievement standards.
What is LAP? : The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) provides additional academic support to students who are achieving below grade level on state and district assessments and to 11th and 12th grade students at risk of not graduating. It is funded by the state.

Parents' Right to Know
All teachers and paraprofessionals at a Title I building meet the highly qualified requirements of No Child Left Behind. Parents have the right to request information on the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teachers. They may request information on:
- Whether the teacher is teaching the subject and grade levels in which he/she is qualified and licensed.
- Whether the teacher is not highly qualified but is teaching in an emergency where qualifications have been set aside temporarily.
- What degrees and certification the teacher holds and in what subject areas.
- Whether the child receives services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
