What is Title I?
The Title I Reading Improvement Program is a federally funded project that provides supplemental reading instruction to eligible students beyond what is provided in the classroom.  Title I offers support to eligible children in the primary grades K-3rd. Specific and direct supplemental reading instruction in the skill areas of phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension is offered to students in small group settings. Reading specialists work directly with students to strengthen their reading skills and support children as they become proficient independent readers.  Reading progress is sent home to parents/guardians weekly!  Parents/guardians are encouraged to become involved in the design of the building level Title I Parent Engagement & Involvement Policy/Plan, School-Home compact, and working together with reading specialists to plan parent involvement opportunities including parent trainings throughout the year.  The goal in Title I is to promote positive communication between the home and school and offer plenty of training opportunities.
Parent Resource Center
Title I also offers free resources to all families involved.  Check out our WHP Parent Resource Center in the video below!  Contact your child's Title 1 teacher for a sign out slip if you would like your child to bring home any of these games/activities!!
