The Title 1 TAS Program at Pine Tree will serve over 60 students in kindergarten, first, second, and third grade in the area of Reading.  All students are selected based on extensive data collection at the beginning of the school year, and periodically throughout the year.   After study of the data, students that can benefit from more explicit target assistance are identified and serviced.    


             All students will receive core instruction from certified staff utilizing McGraw-Hill Reading.  The Title 1 staff will assist identified students both in the classroom and in small groups.  This intervention time produces smaller group ratios, as well as more extensive targeted instruction.   Progress monitoring will be utilized to document progress or to identify a need for re-teaching specific skills.


          The annual Parent Night will be held on September 18th.  There will be both a morning and evening session for parents.  This event will allow parents to learn about Title 1, how students are identified, what additional services and supports are provided, and more information on family nights.  Parents will also sign the Parent, Teacher, Student Compact.


                The Title 1 staff consists of Miss Katie Burks, our Title 1 teacher and Mrs. Elizaveta Libby-Danilova, our Title 1 instructional assistant.
