Title I Frequently Asked Questions
What is Title I?
 
Title I refers to the largest federally funded education program in the nation. The goal of Title I is to assist students in achieving grade level standards in reading/language arts and math. 
 

The federal Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that every state and school district develop and implement academic standards and assessments, as well as a system for accountability. Under the law, federal resources are allocated to provide various academic programs and services for eligible students and keep parents informed of their rights.

 

Why is Bartlett Elementary a Title I School?

 
A school’s Title I eligibility is solely determined by the percentage of students in the school who qualify for free or reduced lunch. When 40% or more of a school’s student population qualify for free or reduced lunch, the school is eligible to receive Title I funding.

How does Title I benefit BES?
 
  • Increased focus on student achivement

  • Practice the following strategies with your child
Reading Strategies:

1) Read AR books aloud to parents nightly for at least 25 min (Not independently) Parents need to hear and correct words and ask comprehension questions. (Predictions? Inferences? Why questions?)

2)When an error is made while reading a word, wait to give your child a chance to work on it independently.

3) Ask questions to invite recall and thinking:

- “Why do you think _______ happened?”

- “What do you think _______ means?”

4) Encourage re-reading to build comprehension

5) Model expressive reading and have your child echo read & encourage correct pacing (not too fast or slow)

6) Demonstrate how to attend to the punctuation (pausing at the end of sentences and adding expression based on the punctuation mark)

7) Make connections to real-life situations and discuss

8) Remember to PRAISE your child in his/her successes

 
Math Strategies:

1) Count orally by twos, fives, or tens

2) Enrich daily life with math activities

- Counting items (dishes, groceries, etc.)

- Practice measurements for recipes

- Discuss the days and dates on the calendar

- Play board games that incorporate skills (dice, money, etc.)
