Title I is a federally funded supplemental education program that provides funds to districts to improve educational opportunities for children. Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards in reading and mathematics.
Susquehanna Community Elementary School uses Federal funds (Title 1) to provide interventions for all students in four-year-old kindergarten through grade 6 who begin to experience difficulty. This is done through a school-wide model of targeted interventions called Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtII). Students qualify to receive this targeted intervention based upon results of state and local assessments, benchmark and diagnostic assessments, progress monitoring assessments, and classroom performance. Specialists work with small groups of students, providing research-based instruction.
Parents/guardians of any student receiving additional support will receive ongoing information regarding their child's progress through quarterly progress reports and at parent/teacher conferences, as well as phone and email communications as needed. The parent can always contact the Title 1 Coordinator, Mrs. Julie Gallo, with any questions or concerns. She can be reached at 570-853-4921 extension 1257 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
