Title 1 Reading


Title 1 Schoolwide-Parent Compact

The purpose of the School Parent Compact is to build and foster the development of a school-parent partnership to help all children achieve the state’s high standards. Responsibility for improved student achievement will be shared by parents, the child, and teachers.

School Responsibilities

The Stingel Staff will:

  • Provide high quality curriculum and instruction that address the learning standards in a supportive, effective learning environment.    

  • Provide and participate in professional development opportunities that improve teaching and learning, and support formation of partnerships with families and the community.

  • Communicate with parents regarding their child’s academic progress and other appropriate information through school-parent conferences and other media sources.

  • Collaborate with the families in decision making, and work to make school accessible and a welcoming place.

Parent/Guardian Responsibilities

We as parents/guardians, will support our child’s learning in the following ways:

  • Monitor my child’s school attendance and punctuality, homework completion, technology usage and school-home communications.

  • Communicate with school staff about my child’s progress.

  • Attend teacher-parent conferences.

  • Read to my child or encourage my child to read every day.

  • Support my school in its efforts to maintain proper discipline.

Stingel is a school-wide Title I building. This does not mean every student receives Title I services. Every student does receive the benefit of teacher training in literacy that directly impacts the education of every student in the curriculum. The Title team provides services to every teacher/student in the area of formative and summative assessments. The displayed slides are suggestions to help your reader and are part of the Compact (agreement) parents and teachers helped author at Stingel. If you have a suggestion for an addition to this Compact, please contact the title team. Title I teachers can be reached at their email: last name. first name @olsohio.org

What is Title 1 Reading?

Title I is a federally funded program that provides for struggling readers in elementary and secondary schools. This service is in addition to what the classroom teacher provides in reading instruction. It is not special education. Title I uses Fundations, Heggerty, and Heggerty Bridge the Gap intervention programs to service struggling readers in this type of intervention. We do not simply remediate, but intervene with explicit instruction at your child's level in a student to teacher ratio of 1:4. Our goal is to assist students to higher levels of literacy and to acquire a strong skill set for reading. We aim to make this a positive experience for your child.

Our Title I teachers are highly qualified and experienced. The literacy team at Stingel are reading specialists that have been trained to provide supplemental reading instruction. 

How are students selected to participate in Title 1 reading?

All students are administered a developmental assessment.  If areas of need are determined, the Title I program can help eliminate the gap.  

How long will my child remain in Title 1? 

Students may remain in Title I for 9 weeks or longer, depending on the student’s need or progress.  When a child has shown the necessary progress, he/she may be released so another child can participate in the program. 

How often will my child meet with the Title 1 teacher?

Students go for a block of 30 minutes with the Title 1 teacher three to five days a week depending on the student’s need.

 Will  my child feel "labeled" if they are pulled out of the classroom for Title1?

Most students are very excited to go with the Title 1 teacher and fellow classmates. The students are familiar with participating in small groups in their classrooms and enjoy working in Title 1 groups as well.

Can I decline services for my child?

Yes, you may decline Title I services by sending your child’s teacher written notice of your decision.
