• Tyrone Area Elementary School School-wide Title 1 Program

    Our District reading curriculum is supported and supplemented by the Title 1 program in assessment, instruction, data-collection, and score reporting.  Everyone works together to support the achievement of our students.  It is truly a "School-wide" effort. All students benefit from the program.
