Julie Fotiades, Title I Coordinator
Supplement Not Supplant Policy
It is the practice of the Winthrop Public School District that funds designated for Title I services are to be utilized only to supplement the regular education program.
Title I funds are not permitted to be used for anything other than supplemental services for Title I identified students. Funds from the Title I grant are not to be used to supplant services that are already provided or should be provided by Winthrop Public Schools.
The Superintendent of Schools and the Title I Coordinator will ensure that the Title I money is spent only at the following targeted assistance schools: the William P. Gorman Fort Banks Elementary School, the Arthur T. Cummings Elementary School and the Winthrop Middle School.
At the school level, the building principal and the Title I Coordinator will ensure that the Title I teachers provide supplemental services only to students who have been identified as eligible for Title I services by multiple criteria. At no time are the Title I teachers at the targeted assistance school used to supplant services that are and/or should be provided by the Winthrop Public School District.
This policy is shared with all staff at the targeted assistance schools.
