TITLE I PROGRAMS ARE SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO ASSIST STUDENTS IN DEVELOPING SKILLS TO MEET CHALLENGING STATE STANDARDS IN READING AND MATH.
- Students advance at different rates.
- Some require extra help.
- Some students find growing up and learning at the same time very difficult.
IF you notice that your child:
- does not like to talk about what he/she is learning at school,
- is reluctant to go to school,
- says, “I’ll never learn,”
- seems to be developing negative feelings toward school,
- your child is not performing at grade level,
- the classroom teacher indicates that your child is having great difficulty with classroom work,
THEN your child may be able to get help from the Title I Program. Contact our school counselor.
At Belfair Elementary, the Title I program focuses on reading and/or math.
- provide small group support,
- coordinate with classroom teachers,
- supplement classroom instruction,
- monitor student progress,
OUR GOALS ARE:
- to provide supplemental instruction in basic skills,
- to reinforce and generate success in every student every day,
- to motivate students,
- to create a stronger self-image in students,
- to help students meet the high standards of both the District and the State.
EVERYONE HAS A ROLE
Because parents are a child’s first teacher, a partnership between parents and the Title I Program is essential for student success. Each student who receives Title I services has a Parent Compact, which outlines the responsibilities of the school, teachers, parents, and students. Parents can help make this an experience that will have a positive effect on your child’s future by being involved. Contact your child’s teacher or the school office to find out how you can become involved in your school’s program.
- Visit the school.
- Participate in school activities.
- Ask questions.
- Help your student at home.
- Encourage reading and writing.
- Encourage the use of math skills.
