Title I

Come visit us next door to the Makers Space!

Introducing your Title I team : Betsy Weiss and Lisa Cuenca.

Paden's diverse community earns our school two additional staff and curriculum resources to provide more differentiated instruction to all kids!

We are funded by money from the federal government based on the number of students attending Paden who qualify for free/reduced lunch.

For more official nitty gritty about Title I funding check out this link or for an overview click here.
