Welcome to Title 1 Reading
Title 1 Reading is a federally-funded program to provide additional support and learning opportunities. The program is designed to help students achieve proficiency on State reading standards. The program focuses on three types of support:
- Preventive [students who are at-risk of academic failure]
- Supportive [students needing additional reading skills & instruction]
- Intensive [students who are below grade level]
Students in 2nd - 6th grade are given the STAR Reading Test quarterly. This is a computerized test to identify students who would benefit from Title 1 Reading or are no longer in need of this service. First graed students are given the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) at the beginning of the 1st and 2nd quarter to identify students who would benefit from Title 1 Reading or are no longer in need of this service.The 3rd and 4th quarter assessment is the computerized STAR Reading Test.
Title 1 Redading class is thirty minutes twice a week. Students leave their regular class for Title 1 Reading. The majority of students are pulled out during AR. When scheduling does not allow for this, the students are then pulled out of class after teacher instruction has occurred.
Title 1 Reading also has intensive instruction for students with dyslexic markers. The progam's curriculum is based off of Orton-Gillingham's methodology.
