Title 1 Reading

Title 1 is a federally funded program intended to strengthen the basic and advanced skills of students achieving below grade level. Its full name is "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001" (PL107-110).

West Platte offers a program for students to help improve their reading skills. The Title 1 Reading Program is offered to qualifying students who would benefit from small group fundamental reading instruction. The Title 1 program offers support on basic reading skills and follows closely with what the students are doing in their classroom. The skills focused on include visual sequencing, needed motor skills, phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, and comprehension.

At West Platte, parents are encouraged to be involved with their child's education. Parent involvement is essential to the success of the Title 1 program. Having parents involved in the education of their children is part of the expectation as schools are chosen to participate in Title 1. Schools take the initiative in creating and working with parents to develop specific programs for each parent's needs. Anytime you have parent involvement programs, they are aimed to help parents support the education of their children.
