• The Pennridge School District Federal Programs Office is responsible for Title I, Title II, Title III and Title IV programs as well as other state and federal grants. The Coordinator of Federal Programs, Dr. Anthony Rybarczyk, supervises Federal Programs staff, writes and supervises state and federal grants, and develops program budgets on an annual basis.

     

    Title I, Title II, Title III and Title IV are the largest federally-funded programs in the nation and provide the district with annual funding to raise student achievement.

     

    Title I currently serves four schools within the Pennridge School District: P.A. Guth Elementary School, Sellersville Elementary School, West Rockhill Elementary School, and  South Middle School. Title I funds also serve students at a number of surrounding non-public schools. The Schoolwide Title I programs in our buildings offer comprehensive programming to assist all students in meeting grade-level reading and mathematics expectations. Supplemental instruction is provided to academically needy students in reading and mathematics as determined by each school’s schoolwide plan. Teachers, principals, parents, families, and the Federal Programs Coordinator work as a team at each school to review the needs of students at the school and annually update the Schoolwide plans so that the school can accomplish its mission of ensuring that all students meet grade-level goals in the areas of reading and mathematics.

     

    The Title II program (staff development) is integrated with Title I to provide comprehensive, ongoing staff development driven by an annual professional development needs assessment survey.

     

    The Title III education program for English Language (EL) students mirrors the approaches used throughout the district in the mainstream classroom. The EL program provides intensive instruction of the English language. All instruction is conducted in English, and students are grouped according to language needs when possible, as well as appropriate grade levels.

     

    Title IV funds are to be used to focus district efforts on safe and healthy students, and how technology can be integrated into schools to improve teaching and learning in addition to emphasizing access to a well-rounded education that includes a wide variety of disciplines.

     

    Title programs are designed to enhance student learning, improve instruction and to create safe and supportive schools. We welcome your input and insight into our programming. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or suggestions.
