|Policy Manual||How Does it Affect MY Student?|
All students at Glide Elementary benefit from having a Title 1A program because we are a SCHOOL WIDE PROGRAM. Being a SWP means that our school uses Title funds to empower all students. A few examples follow:
Technology: Funds have been used to upgrade technology for all students. For instance, Title 1A funds allowed us to purchase the laptops for our mobile computer lab and document cameras for classroom group instruction.
Primary Small Group Instruction: Having Title 1A staff allows us to divide into many small reading groups for kindergarten and 1st grade. ALL of our youngest students then benefit from low student/teacher ratio. As needs change, students can shift from one group to another.
Interventions: We strive to meet the needs of at least 80% of students through our core curriculum within the classroom. Through multiple assessments that are conducted school wide and in the classroom, students are identified who may benefit from interventions that are in addition to regular instruction. These interventions may include “double doses” of the same curriculum or additional resources. Interventions are designed to accelerate progress to close the achievement gap. This additional instruction can occur in the Title Room or in the classroom.
Assessments: Conducting school wide assessments help us track the progress as well as needs of all individuals, grade levels, and the school as a whole. The Title 1A program can then coordinate with classroom teachers to support their efforts. Staff meets regularly to discuss instructional needs based on assessments.
