Title I Remedial Services: ___________________________

Dear Parent or Guardian,

      I am happy to inform you that our school district is offering your child extra services in reading and math during the school day, called Title I services.  These extra services are provided to regular education students.  These are not special education services.  Title I remedial services and special education are separate programs.

      The purpose of these services is to help your child improve his/her reading and math skills.

Kindergarten eligibility criteria for Title I Remedial Services (2015-2016)
Kindergarten students are offered these services based upon their academic need in reading.  Students with the greatest academic need are selected first based upon the following eligibility criteria:

Reading                                                                                        

  1. Kindergarten Teacher recommendation – 2 points
  2. Title I / Remedial Services recommendation – 2 points
  3. American Reading Company Level:  “Read To Me” – 1 point                                             

    Those students with the highest number of points are selected first followed by the next highest until all available slots are filled.  Students may also become eligible during the year through a recommendation from the Intervention and Referral Services Team, which is a group of teachers who determine if additional services in reading and/or math are needed.

Exit from Title I:  Joint recommendation of parent, regular teacher and Title I teacher, and meets the standards in Reading/Math.

    In the kindergarten Title I program, students receive 30 total minutes of remedial instruction per day, five days per week.  Students will receive four days of remedial instruction in reading and one day of remedial instruction in math.  Math instruction will also focus on reading words used in math instruction. The Title I teacher may deliver services jointly with the regular teacher during reading or math times. The Title I teacher may also work with your child in a small group in the regular classroom or in a separate classroom.

    This Title I remedial services program is voluntary.  Your child is not required to participate, but we feel the additional services will help your child.  On the attached page, please indicate whether you wish your child to receive Title I services during the year.  Please return this form to your child’s Title I teacher.

 If you have any questions regarding this program, please do not hesitate to contact your child's Title I remedial services teacher, _________________________________________ at the Davenport Primary School (phone: 645-3550 ext. ________ / e-mail _______________________) or myself at the above-referenced number.

      Best wishes to your child for a successful school year!
                                                                                                     

Sincerely,
