Building M - Title I

Title I Out of School Time (OST) is a Title I funded program that provides activities that enrich academic skills.

Students in OST are engaged in activities that focus on math, reading, writing and science, art, music, media, games and physical activity with Common Core State Standards.

At the beginning of each semester, students are recruited into OST clubs at each grant funded school site. Posters, fliers, announcements and information on school websites inform students and parents of the clubs that will be offered, when they will meet, and sign-up procedures.  Site administrators, teachers, students and parents work together to find programs that suit the individual needs of the students and enhance learning.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Are the Out of School Time clubs taught by certified teachers?
      Yes. Highly qualified teachers conduct the clubs. Some teachers have educational assistants working with them as well.
    2. My child is tired of doing the same thing all day. Are the OST clubs different?
      The clubs often provide hands-on activities that combine math, reading and science with art, music, games and physical activity.
    3. Is attendance required?
      The OST activities are voluntary, but most students find themselves happily involved in learning, and enjoy the extra time after school, so they attend regularly.
    4. Will the activity leaders help my child with homework?
      The OST clubs are intended to provide extended learning activities, but not to help with homework. Many of the activities address the same skills, but homework is done at home or with assistance from other sources.
