What is Title I?

Title One is a Federal program designed to give families and students extra time and extra help to make sure they get the best education possible.

How does your child qualify for our support? Teachers use data collected from tests and daily student performance to identifiy and then determine the best course of action to help any student that is performing below grade level in reading and/or math.

Support provided at your child's school:  Each classroom is provided with a trained paraprofessional to work with small groups of students or to offer one on one support every day.  The teacher and the aide work closely to plan for all the different levels of learning. With the goal being to bring the learner up to grade level as soon as possible.

During conferences , Title I Para pros are available to demonstrate math and reading concepts used in our classrooms. Please plan to stop by during conferences to find out how you can help at home.

Reading Resources

Research shows that reading success is directly related to the number of words read per year. The more you read the better you get! 

Some things you can do at home to help your child become a reader:

  1. Read to your child.
  2. Make reading a pleasure.
  3. Show enthusiasm as you read with your child.
  4. Read to your child everyday.
  5. Talk with your child as you read together.
  6. Encourage your child to explore books.
  7. Read favorite books again and again.

The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
  ~ Dr. Seuss
