Student Selection

All Shenandoah County elementary schools are now operating Schoolwide Title I Programs. Schoolwide programs serve all children in a school. All staff, resources, and classes are part of the Schoolwide program. The purpose is to generate high levels of academic achievement in core subject areas for all students, especially those students most in need.

The purpose is achieved through high quality instruction, comprehensive reform strategies and methods to improve teacher quality and development, and the consolidated use of funds.

Children may be selected to participate based on his/her reading level or comprehension. The Reading Specialist(s) may work with children in their classroom or in a small group outside the classroom. During the reading time together, they will work to build vocabulary, word study, fluency, and comprehension skills. This service may be year-long or for a short period of time. 

Parental involvement and support is critical to a child’s progress and success.  Research has proven that when parents and teachers work together as a team, children’s reading skills show greater improvement.

Please consider the following suggestions as you support your child at home by

●Setting aside a specific time for homework and review it regularly.
●Monitoring homework daily to see that it is completed and returned in a timely fashion.
●Communicating with the school regularly through conferences, phones calls, notes, letters, and visits.
●Insuring punctuality and good attendance of my child.
●Providing a caring, encouraging, loving environment for learning at home.
●Supporting school staff in maintaining proper discipline.
●Working with staff to best understand the child and meet individual needs.
●Reading with my child and let my child see me read regularly.
