Staying Focused

  • What is the purpose of Title I funds?

  • A large misconception: Title I Schoolwide vs Title I Targeted Assistance

  • What is your data telling you?

    • What data is being used?

    • Are your assessments valid and consistent?

    • How is data informing instruction?


What the research says

What the research says…

  • The 1/3 of incoming kindergarten students who do not know letter names are most likely to become struggling readers

  • By layering 30 minute expert, intentional tutoring to at-risk kindergarteners and very small group sessions to first graders, on top of a 90 minute, high quality reading block for all students, 98% of all 1st graders can read at grade level. These students are even more likely to remain at grade level through third grade (Allington, 2011).

  • A student not proficient by the end of first grade has a 90 percent probability of remaining a poor reader by Grade 4 and a 75 percent probability of being a poor reader in high school (Mathes, n.d.)

Creating a common vision

Creating a Common Vision

  • Everyone must be on board

  • You can’t tell people what to believe. They have to believe it for themselves.

The reality

THE REALITY!!!


Non negotiables

Non Negotiables

  • Everyone must be on board

  • Classroom teachers must provide the first round of interventions based on need

  • Intervention times are based on need, not on convenience

  • ALL students MUST receive the same dose of grade level instruction in math and reading. Intervention times cannot come out of those times.


Roadblocks

Roadblocks

  • Teachers

  • Specials or other schedules

  • Initial large number of students who need interventions
