Title I is a federally funded regular educational program designed to supplement local and state funds for education. The program’s goal is to help students develop proficient reading and math skills by providing additional learning time and direct instruction supporting the curriculum of the regular classroom. Interventions last anywhere from a few weeks to a year, but the goal is to help the child catch up to his/her peers. The premise is that once they are caught up, they will no longer need extra support. This is considered a Tier 2 intervention and is most often used for students who score in the 16th percentile to the 35th percentile in standardized tests or whose teachers have recommended them based on classroom assessments.
Other aspects of this program include communication with parents, suggestions to parents regarding methods they might use with their children at home to help boost their skills, meetings to discuss the program and it's effectiveness, and resources for parents.
Feb. 17 was our second family math game night. We had a rousing game of Yahtzee going, as well as several other games like Qwirkle, and Pit. Thanks so much to those families who came and made the night a success. The next one is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 9, depending on the basketball schedule.
