Title 1...What is it?

Title 1 is a federally funded program that has been in existence since 1965.  The goal of Title 1 is to provide extra help and instruction in math and reading for the students who need it.

Title 1 can help:
*children do better in school and feel better about themselves
*parents understand their children better
*parents have more say about their child's education
*classroom teachers can benefit from support of the extra service and from the satisfaction of seeing children succeed


Title 1 programs generally offer:
*smaller instructional groups (5-6) or smaller
*additional teachers and assistants
*extra instruction in reading and other skills
*a variety of teaching methods and materials


Parents are a part of the Title 1 team!
Educational research suggests that a child's success in school is more likely when parents and school personnel work together.  Students receive a better education when schools, parents, and communities are responsible for that child's education.



Things you can do at home to help your child at school:
*read to your child and allow them to read to you
*ask your child about school and take an interest in what they are saying and learning
*go through your child's bookbag everyday
*make sure they get enough sleep
*set limits on the amount of television they watch and video games they play
*make sure they get a good breakfast everyday


Communication:

Education is a partnership between home and school.  We value parent involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with us.  In order for this partnership to be effective, we need to be able to communicate.  Please feel free to call, write us a note, or e-mail us if you have concerns or questions about your child's education.  We are always available to schedule a conference to discuss any issue or concern you have regarding your child.
