Title I A
We are very fortunate to have the federally funded Title IA Program in our school. This program provides supplemental instruction in reading. Our Title IA team includes teachers Jody Vanegas and Laurie Carter. The team also includes educational assistants Christine Thomas and Michelle Trunnell. All Title IA staff is highly qualified.
Students qualify for Title IA services based on screening that is done for every child during the first few weeks of school and assessments given throughout the year. Requests from classroom teachers and parents are also considered. We use the most recent data available to qualify students for TIA services. Students receive additional instruction in a small group setting. Instruction is usually 30 minutes, five days each week. Lessons take place during the classroom reading block so children do not miss instruction in other subjects. These lessons are in addition to instruction from their classroom teacher. Students move in and out of the program as needs arise.
