Title 1 is a Federal Program providing funds for schools across the nation. The goal of Title 1 is to provide a high quality education for every child.
Nationwide, the program serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. R. F. McMullen is a Schoolwide Title 1 school. This means that our Title 1 money can be used to provide high quality instruction for every student at McMullen.
McMullen teachers identify students, through assessment results, who need extra help to be on track in reading and/or math. Students are selected to receive Title 1 small group services if they have an academic need.
All students receive Title 1 services when the Title 1 teachers and staff work together in the classroom. All our teachers use high quality instructional research-based strategies. Primarily, they go into the classroom to work with children during guided reading groups and/or provide interventions for some students on an individual basis.
In addition to working with the classroom teacher, Title 1 staff:
· Identify students in need of educational help
· Set goals for student improvement
· Measure student progress
· Inform parents of progress at least quarterly with the report card
· Participates in on-going, high quality staff development
Parent involvement is encouraged at McMullen through:
· Parent training/literacy nights
· McMullen Parents Association monthly meetings
· Annual Parent Night
· Open House
· Parent Teacher Conferences
· Parent Newsletters
· Parent/Student/Teacher compacts
At the end of the year, parent surveys are administered providing feedback for assessing the strengths and weaknesses of our program and giving insight as to how to make the program more effective. Thank you, in advance, for your participation.
