Schoolwide TITLE I Program K-6
Any student, for whom assessments indicate a need for intervention in the areas of reading and math, will receive instruction and assistance that will help them to attain a measure of success in the classroom. This will be accomplished through specific skill-related interventions decided on by the classroom teacher and the Title I coordinator.
Mode of Presentation:
Title I students will be served either within the regular classroom or through the pull-out method. The latter will be utilized to work with students on an individual basis or in a small group setting. For example, students may leave the room to learn a skill, to read orally, or to practice math facts.
Grades are not given in Title I. The Title I teacher confers with the classroom teacher concerning students grades’ in an effort to determine the needs of the students and methods of assistance. Communication between parents and the Title I teacher is maintained through phone calls, newsletters, parent conferences, annual parent meetings and progress reports.
