Title I/Learning Assistance Program (LAP)

The Title I/LAP Program is an important partner in achieving Arlington School District's vision that all children will achieve academic success, develop a sense of purpose, and view learning as a life-long experience.

The purpose and goals of the federal Title I Program and the state Learning Assistance Program (LAP) are essentially the same. Both programs seek to improve the educational opportunities of students who are academically at-risk for mastering the material set forth within the state content standards. Both programs provide supplemental instruction; in effect, a "double dose" of instruction in the student's area of greatest need (reading or math). Overall, the rules governing Title I are more stringent than those for LAP.

To file a citizen complaint against a school district, educational service district or OSPI, visit the OSPI website for documents (available in several languages) Title I Schools include Eagle Creek Elementary, Kent Prairie Elementary and Presidents Elementary Schools.
