Grading Policy

Students in the Title I program are encouraged to utilize take home materials such as leveled non-fiction texts, novels, and magazines.  It is important for students to read regularly at night, practice fluency passages, review high frequency words, and respond to their reading through written responses.  Reading specialists will review homework assignments the next school day and lessons will build on information taught in Title I sessions and assignments completed at home.  Our goal is to support students as they strengthen their skills as independent readers, writers, and thinkers. 

Students served in the Title I program will receive a progress report card every nine weeks that will accompany the regular report card.  These reports will reflect students' progress towards grade level standards in literacy education.  The areas of fluency, phonics/word work skills, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension will be assessed to determine a benchmark reading level.  Parents are welcomed and encouraged to meet with the Title I reading specialists to discuss academic progress in the program and how we can work together to support learning.
