What is Title 1?


Title 1 is the United States’ largest federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Through Title 1, the federal government gives money to school districts based on the number of students from low-income families. Each district uses its Title 1 money for extra educational services that help students achieve at high levels and meet the local and state standards.


What is a School-Wide Program?


Federal and state guidelines state that schools with more than 40 percent of all students from low-income families can establish a school-wide program. The purpose of a school-wide program is to improve student achievement throughout the entire school. School districts assess whole-school needs and design their own plans to help students meet the achievement standards set by the state of Ohio. Title 1 programs at each school vary, depending on the needs of the school. Every child will benefit from the added services and programs that a school-wide Title 1 program can offer. A school-wide program helps a school do more for all of its students.

Protect Nightly Reading Time


· Reading is a SKILL and must be practiced

o  Just like anything else you want to be good at

o  The more you practice the better you will become

· MUST read 5-4 times per week

· Set a routine 

o  5 Times Sunday-Thursday

o  4 Times Monday-Thursday

· If you must miss, then you must make it up

· Read 10 minutes per grade level

o  Grade 3 X 10 minutes = 30 minutes

o  Grade 2 X 10 minutes = 20 minutes

o  Does NOT include other homework

· Reading time will transfer to study time

o  Grade 10 X 10 minutes = 100 minutes of at home study

· Set the habit and expectation NOW

· Set a timer if you have a reluctant reader

· Set rewards if necessary

o  For every 10 sessions—pick what’s for supper

o  For every successful AR test—extra minutes of gaming

· See me if you have any questions or need assistance helping your child WANT to read!
