LSPS Title 1 Services
Title 1 Services
LSPS offers qualifying students at Rodgers, Masonic and Violet Elementaries to supplemental instruction via Title I services. Title I is a Federal grant that provides funding and resources to assist students that are identified as at-risk of failing the State assessment. These students are identified through multiple assessment sources including parent and teacher concern ratings. Identified students may receive interventions from a certified teacher in a small group or one-on-one within or outside of the classroom.
Title One Information
What is Title 1?
Title 1 is a federal program that provides funds to schools and districts that qualify. Qualification is based on the percentage of students who come from low-income families. It is designed to provide supplemental services that support students academically.
Who is eligible?
Students who show a reading or math deficiency through local and/or State testing may qualify.
How are students placed?
Students will be placed in Title 1 programming based on academic need in the areas of reading/science/social studies and math. They are identified through district-wide assessments such as NWEA, M-STEP results. Individual reading levels and teacher input also are used to make placement decisions.
What happens after placement?
Students assigned to Title 1 will receive additional instruction in either a small group environment or in the regular classroom by a certified teacher. They will receive instruction in the math areas in which they struggle by way of research-based math interventions that supplement our Math Expressions program. In reading, students will participate in a specific phonic, fluency, comprehension or vocabulary intervention or Guided Reading group. Parents will receive a report from the Title 1 teacher outlining their child's progress in the program. Teacher/Parent conferences will be held when requested by the parent or the teacher.
What is Parental Involvement?
Parental involvement means that parents participate in regular, two-way communication about academic performance and other school activities. We believe that:
-Parents play an integral role in their child's learning
-Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's education as partners in their child's learning as well as in school committees and decisions where appropriate.
