Welcome to the LCIS 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.
LCIS has always made a deep commitment to the educational development of its students. Through the use of a variety of funds, we are able to support additional reading and math instruction assistance to children on an individual or small group basis. Here at LCIS we support all students and in all grades through our Title I program. We utilize a variety of curriculums, resources, assessments, materials, and staff to meet the needs of all students. Here is a list of the different intervention curriculums we have available to all of our students:
- Wonder Works
- All About Reading
- FCRR Phonemic Awareness interventions
- Heggerty Phonemic Awareness activities
- Interventions specifically tailored to meet areas identified in the NWEA, Dyslexia Screener and Arkansas Rapid Naming screener
- Khan Academy
- IXL Mathematics
- Classroom based assessments
- Interventions specifically targeted to meet student learning deficits
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 and math 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 or math instruction in a small group setting. These groups are led by certified teachers and/or highly qualified instructional assistants.
These assessments include:
- TRC/Scholastic Next Steps Benchmarks
- Scholastic Next Steps Benchmarks
- WIDA levels
- Classroom assessments (all grades)
Progress Monitoring for student growth and RtI data:
- Informal observations & anecdotal notes
- NWEA Growth assessments
