What is Title I Reading?

    Title I Reading is a supplemental reading program funded with federal, state, and local monies.  The purpose of this program is to help children who are reading below grade level receive added individual instruction.  Children are given the opportunity for small group instruction that reinforces reading strategies and skills appropriate for new and struggling readers.  Eventually, many of them will no longer need additional assistance in reading. Title I gives the extra care and confidence some children need to experience success in reading.

How do children qualify for the Reading Program?

    Students qualify for Title I with a score at the 39th percentile or lower on the Gates MacGinitie Reading Test.   Students may also qualify for the program by reading  below grade level on the DRA2 or on the Ohio AIR English/Language Arts test.

What can parents do to help?

    The degree of success and improvement made by children is directly affected by the amount of time given to reading in the home.  This includes listening to children read, reading to children and establishing a reading example in the home.  Parents are a child's first teacher and the home is a child's first school.  Throughout the year you will be provided with specific examples of what you can do to help your child with reading at home.  There is no limit to what the love of reading will do for your child.  It will open doors of curiosity and knowledge.  It will stimulate their desire to see places they thought were make-believe.  It softens loneliness, fills the gaps of boredom, creates role models and changes the course of their very lives.  I am looking forward to working with you as a team for your child's success!
