Annual Title 1 Parent Letter

September 28, 2023
Dear Elementary and Middle School Parents,
Wheelersburg Elementary School and Wheelersburg Middle School participate in a federal grant program which provides local schools with resources to provide supplemental reading and math support to help students improve their academic achievement. With this program, which is called School-wide Title 1, we can place additional highly qualified teachers in our classes or provide small group instruction to strengthen student skills and help them improve their academic achievement.
What is a School-wide Title 1 Program?  The purpose of a School-wide Title 1 program is to generate high levels of academic achievement in core subject areas for all students. To qualify as a School-wide Title 1 program a school building must have at least 40% of its student body qualify for free or reduced meals.  A School-wide Title 1 program serves all children in a school.
Who are the Title 1 students?  In a School-wide Title 1 program all students are Title 1 students. They are students who will succeed when given extra instruction and support.   Students receive services based on their test scores and classroom performance in Math and Reading.
What can parents do to support their child’s learning?  To support your child’s learning you might do the following: 1) share a love of learning and set a good example by reading with your child; 2) make learning fun by playing educational games, visiting the library, and talking with your child about school; 3) show interest in your child’s school day by asking specific questions and praising their effort and improvement.
We wish all students a successful 2023-2024 school year.
 If you have any questions, please contact any of the Title 1 staff members listed below.
Mark Knapp                Brandie Frazier           Dana Hamilton            Dawn Horsley
Tina Green                  Janeen Spradlin           Betty Green                 Brent Eaton
