Title I

All about Title I

Title I is a federally-funded program for students. These funds are used by schools to provide extra educational services for children who need additional instruction to reach grade-level standards.

Title 1 at Bowman Charter School is designed to provide students with supplemental instruction in reading and math. The classroom teachers and the Title 1 teacher communicate frequently as they evaluate students and plan and implement appropriate instruction. Program delivery occurs as either pull-out or in-class model based on student need.

The Ackerman School District is fortunate to have Laura Wilkinson as its Title I Director. Laura has 24 years of education experience with 16 of them here at Bowman directing our Title I program. She can be contacted at lwilkinson@bowmancharter.org.

Title 1 Programs at Bowman

Bowman Charter School offers a variety of intervention programs:

  • Math Support
  • Academic Core Support


It takes a team to ensure your student is as successful in school as he or she can be. That team includes the student, the school and you - the parent or guardian. Studies show that students do better when parents are engaged in and supportive of their education. Some ways to help include:

  • Keep reading positive!
  • Encourage your student to read for pleasure.
  • Meet your student’s teachers, either at Back-to-School night or by calling or e-mailing.
  • Set aside a designated time and space to do homework; ask every night if your student has work to complete.
  • Talk with your student about the school day.
