What is Title One?  

The Title I is a federally funded program that provides for struggling readers in elementary and secondary schools. This service is in addition to what the classroom teacher provides in the classroom. It is not special education. Our goal is to assist students to higher levels of literacy and to acquire a strong skill set for reading. We aim to make this a positive experience for your child.
As the Title One Reading Teacher, my goal is to support the teachers and be a resource for students that find reading a little bit more difficult.  

FAQ's About Title One Reading Services
  1. How are students selected to participate in a cycle of Title 1 reading?
    All students are administered a developmental assessment which measures decoding, fluency, accuracy, comprehension, and writing. An instructional level is determined and the students that demonstrate the most need from each classroom are recommended.
  2. How often will my child meet with the Title 1 teacher?
    Students go for a block of 30 minutes with the intervention teacher three-five days a week depending on the grade level. We also service students inclusively in kindergarten to support letter/sound instruction. Both of these instructional modes are beneficial for the struggling reader.
  3. Will my child feel "labeled" if they are pulled out of the classroom for Title 1?
    Most students are very excited to go with the Title 1 teacher and fellow classmates. The students all participate in small groups and are enjoy working in quiet areas in the class, hall or Title 1 classroom.
  4. Can I decline services for my child?
    Yes, you are welcome to tell your child’s classroom teacher you would like to decline services.
