The Title I Reading Improvement Program is a federally funded project that provides supplemental reading instruction to eligible students. Activities are structured to encourage children to work and communicate cooperatively in small groups. Collaborative partnerships with parents/guardians are encouraged and nurtured through this program. This partnership ensures outgoing communication between parent and teacher to better serve the needs of each child.
Title I offers support to eligible children in the elementary grades. Specific and direct supplemental reading instruction in the skill areas of phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension is offered to students in small group settings. Reading specialists work directly with students to strengthen their reading skills and support children as they become proficient independent readers. Parents/guardians are encouraged to become involved in the design of building level Title I Parent Involvement Plans. This promotes positive communication between the home and school and training opportunities.
