Welcome to the Title I page
at Charles T. Koontz Intermediate School. We serve fifth and sixth
grade English/Language Arts classes and provide small group reading
instruction. Reading specialists plan lessons and prepare instructional
materials that strengthen phonics, word work skills, vocabulary,
fluency, reading comprehension, writing, and book discussions. Title I
classes meet daily for 25 to 45 minutes, depending on their
English/Language Arts class schedule.
The Title I program is in
its third year of operation at Koontz Intermediate School under the
leadership of Kelly Dietz, Malorie Morrill, and Laura Josey. Our team
is thrilled to be a part of the Koontz family and we are looking forward
to an exciting and productive school year.
goal is to provide a high quality education for every child, especially
to students who are at risk of not meeting state academic standards.
In 2014-2015, Title I students made 3.5 levels of reading growth, which
is equal to almost two years of progress.
students (those below grade level) also receive a Title I progress
report every nine weeks in addition to their regular report card. These
students receive ongoing progress monitoring in the form of research
based reading assessments.
I funds are received from the federal government under the No Child
Left Behind law. Funds are used for instructional materials,
professional development opportunities for teachers, parent involvement
events, and Title One staffing costs. All students at Koontz
Intermediate School benefit from Title I funds.
