Title I is a federally subsidized reading intervention program that is available to students in grades K through 6. Candidates for the program are identified through assessments and teacher observations. The Reading Specialist provides intervention in the regular classroom or an alternative classroom. The purpose of the program is to provide intensive instruction and practice in all facets of the reading process. Primary students are taught in small flexible groups that meet three to five times a week. In fourth through sixth grades, interventions are accommodated in several ways. Some students are taught in whole group class instructional groups with the reading specialist and classroom teacher offering collaborative lessons on reading and test taking strategies, while other students are taught in small intervention groups that meet three to five days a week. The Title I staff and classroom teachers consult to determine how each student’s needs are addressed. Parents are kept abreast of the Title I program through progress reports and Title I parent workshops.
