What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program to offer supplemental instruction for students who need such assistance to be academically successful. Millville Area School District offer supplemental instruction in math and reading in Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Because Millville Elementary School has a school-wide program, all students are potentially eligible for assistance. However, preference will be given to those identified through the process described in this brochure.
How is Eligibility Determined?
All students who score Basic or Below Basic on the PSSA or other diagnostic tests will be screened for Title I reading services. Students are then provided with services using their diagnostic test results, PSSA scores, and performance within the current reading series.
What are the Goals of the Program?
The goal is to increase the basic reading and math ability of each student through supplemental activities. Title I services do not replace the regular classroom instruction.
Services are delivered by the teacher in the regular classroom if possible. There are also times when students are given tutoring and small group instruction outside of the classroom.
What Activites are Included?
The activities in Title I can include:
- Computer Software;
- High Interest Books;
- Recorded Material;
- Library books, e-Books, and others;
- Basal reader supplemental material;
How Important in Parental Involvement?
Parent involvement is an important part of the Title I program. Parent support in reviewing skills and encouraging their child can make all the difference. A home/school compact has been developed for the District which shows the importance of everyone cooperating to develop your child’s skills.
During the year we will have scheduled parent meetings. Parent conferences will be scheduled in November and April. You may also request a meeting with the staff at any time during the year by contacting the teacher.
Parent resources are available in the Elementary Building lobby on the resource table.
