Title I Program Description
Title I is a federally funded supplemental reading program. Supplemental literacy instruction is available to all students in grades k through 5 who demonstrate a need for this instruction. Candidates for the program are identified through assessments and teacher observations. The Title I teachers work closely with classroom teachers to develop appropriate interventions.
The purpose of the program is to provide additional instruction and practice in all facets of the reading process. Parents are kept informed of their children’s progress through progress reports, assessment reports, and parent conferences. Parents are also informed about the Title I Program through parent workshops, take-home information, the district website, and planning meetings.
All parents of Title I students have the opportunity to be involved in federal programs planning. At the spring meeting plans for the upcoming school year are discussed and parents can provide input into how federal funds will be used in the district’s Title I and Title II projects. Parents are asked to review and assist in designing strategies for increasing parental involvement. Parents are also encouraged to partner with teachers by volunteering in their child’s school and practicing reading with their children at home. Parents are also invited to attend workshops with their children to learn techniques to support their children in reading at home.
