It depends on the school system where the Title I
program/position is located and the needs of the Title I
students in that system. Some systems require specific skills
or training to implement the duties of the program/position.
For example, some school systems require their Title I teachers
to use Dibels or other specific programs with their Title I
population. Candidates with knowledge about the required
programs would have an advantage over those without, I think.
However, some school systems may not have these requirements.
If not, your certification may be fine. It is similar to mine
(though I have made other upgrades to mine) and I will be a
Title I teacher next year. If you are interested in the
position, I would apply just to see what questions they ask.
The interview experience can be beneficial.
