Title I Information
The district assessment schedule is available for all parents to view at the start of each school year. Parents may request additional information regarding district assessments at any point from their child’s building principal.
Each year the state of Ohio distributes an annual report card with information about progress made in each school district in regards to student achievement, graduation rates, and other important information. This information may be accessed at https://reportcard.education.ohio.gov/district/overview/049957 .
Our instruction and curricular choices all generate from Ohio’s Learning Standards. Ohio’s Learning Standards may be accessed at http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Learning-in-Ohio/OLS-Graphic-Sections/Learning-Standards .
Tuslaw Elementary School is a schoolwide Title 1 buildings. Title I is one of the nation's oldest and largest federal programs supporting elementary and secondary education. Title I funds are federal funds provided to schools based upon their percentage of students who are identified as being from low income families.
The designation as a schoolwide Title 1 building is based on a local decision. The schoolwide designation allows for significant flexibility to better serve all students. All students are Title 1 students, therefore all students can benefit from the funds the district receives via Title 1.
