    The middle school I work at has some excess title 1 funds to spend. Approx. $3000. Our student population is lower income. Needs in our school are to increase basic reading, writing, and math. We currently have a lot of technology so that is not a need.
    What supplemental programs or after school activities could we use this money on?
    Looking for ideas. Thank you!

    Do you have remedial reading programs? I know schoastic and sopris learning offer a few. Not sure about cost though. Perhaps a subscription to an online remedial reading or math program would be good.

    Supplies or after school tutoring that would focus on reading, writing &/or math. If you have technology, do you need apps? How low are your students? Would they benefit from Raz-Kids? Or something else that needs a license? Sorry, I don't know a lot about math.

    I would think something after school would be the best way to go. Your school is mostly low income, and often after school care is a problem. Yes, middle school age kids are old enough to be alone, but what often happens is that they roam the streets, hang out with the wrong friends, and it goes in a downwards spiral. (a research has shown that age 11-13 is the most crucial, most gang-members started associating with the gang life sometime at that age)

    After school tutoring focusing on math, reading, writing.
