Title One is a federally funded program that is used by schools to provide academic support and learning opportunities to help children in reading and math. Students at Lake of the Woods can qualify for Title One services through teacher or parent recommendation, review of standardized test scores, and reading assessments in the fall.
Our Title One program is available to students in kindergarten through seventh grade. At Lake of the Woods School, our Title One reading services utilize PRESS, FASTBridge, System 44, and Read 180. These programs focus on decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills. Reading groups consist of small groups of no more than seven students.
The Title One math services also consist of small group work either within the regular classroom or in a resource room. Students receive support for the Math Expressions series used in the regular classrooms. Individualized assistance is provided on assignments and parallel activities are utilized.
Title One staff communicates with parents through annual fall meetings, newsletters, parent teacher conference nights, surveys, and end of the year student reading reports. Parents are encouraged to call staff at any time during the school year with any questions or concerns.
