Fayetteville Elementary's Title I Information
Schools receive Title I services based on the number of students who qualify for free and reduced meals; therefore, be sure to complete the free and reduced lunch application. Apply online by visiting our school’s website and clicking on the Food Service tab.
The Title I grant pays for extra books and materials that teachers can use to help your child learn. In addition, Title I funding is used to pay for reading intervention specialists, who work with children to develop literacy skills.
Title I Parent and Family Engagement money is used to buy resources and books that are sent home. It also pays for family events held during and after school.
Children are selected based on various assessment results as well as from teacher recommendations.
Assessments we use:
- Kindergarten: Letter identification, Next Step in Guided Reading Assessment (NSGRA), Measures of Academic Progress (MAP; computerized assessment), sight words
- 1st grade: NSGRA, MAP, sight words
- 2nd - 5th grade: NSGRA, MAP
Title I staff conduct small group or individual reading interventions by either pushing into the classroom or pulling students out of the classroom. Children partake in guided reading, word work, and writing. Children see the following benefits from Title I reading interventions:
-Increased knowledge of letter identification and letter sound knowledge
-Increased independence of reading strategies and comprehension strategies
-Increased abilities in word patterns and spelling
-Enhanced writing skills
Title I information is sent home via newsletters at least three times per year. In addition, Title I staff will attend parent conferences and are available by telephone and through email.
Consent forms for children who are seen by Title I staff will be sent home when interventions begin. (Please sign and return these as soon as possible.)
