Title I Federal Program

2016-2017 TASD Title I Program

For the 2016-2017 school year, TASD will continue to offer Title I Reading support services to students in all eligible schools following a School-Wide Program format. The School-Wide Program allows Title I Reading Specialists to support all TASD Grade K-8 students in Reading regardless of need. Additionally, the School-Wide Program format will support professionals in all four elementary schools and middle school as they continue the full implementation of a MTSS (Multi-Tier System of Supports) in Reading.  We plan to continue PA Hybrid Learning (Math) at Tunkhannock Area Middle School in grades 5 and 6 after a great pilot year.

 TASD Title I Reading Specialists

Our Title I Reading Specialists offer Reading support services to our students via the School-Wide Program Model. They are also an important resource as we continue to implement Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) programs in the schools throughout our district.

Title I Reading Assistants

In our commitment to the support of Reading instruction, Tunkhannock Area School District also provides funding for additional paraprofessionals in the four elementary schools and the middle school. These professionals must possess at a minimum an Associate’s Degree and work directly with students in the area of Reading Instruction.

Additionally, TASD uses Federal funds to hire additional paraprofessionals as MTSS (Multi-Tier System of Supports) helpers within the School-Wide Title I program during Cub Time/Tiger Time activities.

 Title 1 Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement is a key piece in every child’s education.  The Tunkhannock Area School District is committed to reaching out to the parents/guardians of our students.  Each spring, the Title 1 Parent Advisory Council meets to discuss how TASD can improve on parent involvement and outreach.  The Title I Parent Involvement District Policy is reviewed at this meeting for the upcoming school year.  In addition to a Title 1 Parent Involvement District Policy, each Title 1 school adopts a Title 1 Parent Involvement School Policy.  These Policies can be accessed by clicking on the document name in the Title 1 Resources section below.

The professionals who are responsible for providing Title I services in the district are also committed to fostering and facilitating effective parent involvement.  Title I personnel throughout the district will be offering various Parent Involvement activities throughout the school year, and regularly send home materials to help families facilitate literacy. 

Plans for the school-wide Parent Involvement activities for the 2016-2017 school year are in full swing.  Information about upcoming Parent Involvement activities will be announced by Title I Reading Specialists and invitations sent home as plans are finalized.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) created the Title I State Parent Advisory Council (SPAC) in 1990. SPAC includes parents of children participating in Title I. The purpose of this council is to share ideas with the Division of Federal Programs about involving Title I parents to increase student achievement. SPAC parents advise PDE on many aspects of parent involvement-from working with children at home to developing partnerships among parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders to create effective and engaging parent involvement programs.
