Welcome to the Klondike Elementary Title I Web Page. The purpose of a school wide Title I program is to improve the entire educational curriculum in a school, which should result in high levels of academic success for all students, particularly the lowest achieving students. The goal is to assist those students in demonstrating proficiency on academic standards. All staff, resources, and classes are part of an overall school wide program.
Klondike Elementary has always made a deep commitment to the educational development of its students. Through the use of a variety of funds, the corporation is able to support additional reading instruction assistance to children on an individual or small group basis. Here at Klondike we support all students in all grades through our Title I program. We utilize a variety of curricula, resources, assessments, materials, and staff to meet the needs of our students. Here is a list of the different intervention curricula we have available to all of our students:
- Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI)
- Vocabulary A- Z
- Reading A-Z
- Journey’s Toolkits (Phonics, Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, etc.)
- Fold-in strategy used for rote skills
- Vocabulary Workshop for vocabulary development
Parents are the first and most important teachers of their children; therefore, the school supports a strong school and home connection. Our school's Title I funds make it possible to offer many opportunities for families to support education. These include family nights, workshops, and opportunities to learn the most effective ways to assist your child’s reading and math progress at home. Watch for events to be planned throughout the school year.
Our entire school is committed to enhancing each and every child’s reading skills by meeting needs at his/her current level, and improving those skills to the highest possible level. Based on standard testing given to all students, those who would benefit also receive additional customized reading in a small group setting. These groups are led by certified teachers and/or highly qualified instructional assistants. These assessments include:
- Next Steps Guided Reading Assessment
- WIDA levels
- Classroom assessments (grades)
