Dumfries School-wide Title I
September 29, 2015
Dear Dragon Family,
We are pleased to introduce our new School-wide Title I program here at Dumfries Elementary School. Our program includes both math and reading this year. Our Title I mission is “Working together…. So every child can succeed!”.
Title I teachers work with students who need additional help with reading and/or mathematics. They work with students in small groups both inside and outside the regular classroom. Title I reading instruction focuses on phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Title I math instruction focuses on number concepts such as counting, number recognition, number sense, place value and computation. The instruction may include guided reading/math, strategy groups, and hands-on learning activities. Title I teachers may also use formal or informal assessments to check on student progress.
Title I also includes family engagement, where families are encouraged to be engaged in their child’s education through interactive family nights, conferences and reports, and are given take home activities which are used to support learning at home. Our family engagement activities will be linked to another school activity. Please look for Title I flyers to come home around these dates.
