About Title I

Welcome to Title I at South!
What is Title I?
Title 1 is a financial assistance program that enables states and locals schools to reinforce and amplify efforts to improve teaching and learning for students farthest from meeting state standards. Title 1 reaches about 1.5 million students across the state in public and private schools.

What Does Title I Look Like at South?

At South, the Title I program is schoolwide allowing us to provide reading interventions and support to any student who is not performing at grade level based on data collected at benchmarks throughout the year. This data includes Istation assessment data, current performance on weekly tests, progress monitoring, BOG and EOG for and teacher observation. Title 1 and classroom teachers work hand in hand to ensure students who need extra support to grow and find success as readers have the opportunity and resources to do so.

When do students receive Title 1 intervention?
Title 1 services never replaces core reading instruction, so we do not pull students for small group intervention during their literacy block. At South, interventions are done during a protected time each day called STAR time. Children who do not need an intervention will spend that time working in small groups for remediation or enrichment.
What resources are used in Title 1?

At South, we are fortunate to have access to a number of research based intervention programs to help students close the achievement gap and meet their academic goals. Some of our students will participate in the HillRap program. HillRap is a comprehensive, multi-sensory reading intervention program that provides daily intensive instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

Other interventions used at South include: Read Naturally (for building fluency), LLI (Leveled Literacy Intervention (for building comprehension), Letterland Intervention (for building phonemic awareness and decoding skills).and Istation lessons (can be tailored to individual student needs in any area of reading).
