Title I Program
The Title I program provides extra help to students to assist them in meeting state and local education standards. At Mount Eagle Elementary, Title I provides extra resources for our school including:
Reading Recovery® is a short-term, early intervention program. It is designed for first grade children who are not learning to read and write as quickly as their peers. Children in Reading Recovery receive daily lessons from a specially trained teacher for approximately 12-20 weeks. The instruction is in addition to classroom reading and writing instruction.
The purpose of the Mathematics support is to increase the mathematics achievement of students in Title I schools. Title I math resource teachers focus on helping students develop mathematics concepts, problem solving strategies, and computational skills. They work with classroom teachers to assess students’ strengths and needs and to plan appropriate mathematics instruction. Title I math resource teachers may provide ongoing professional learning for teachers in their schools. They work in classrooms as well as with small groups of students. Instruction is based upon the FCPS Program of Studies (POS), the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL), and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards.
