Title I & Learning Assistance Program (LAP)

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 focus of the Title I and LAP programs includes early reading intervention in grades K-4, instructional support in middle school, and graduation support in high school.

What is LAP, or Reading Intervention?

The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) provides additional academic reading support to students who are achieving below grade level on state and district assessments.

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. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law December 10, 2015, and reauthorizes the (ESEA). This program provides financial assistance to public schools with high numbers or percentages of low income children to help ensure that all students meet academic content and achievement standards.
