• What is Title 1?

    Title I is a federally funded program for students needing extra support in reading. Fairfield Area School District uses multiple criteria to identify students that will benefit from extra instruction by a Title 1 reading specialist, intervention specialist or Title 1 paraprofessional. 

    How does my child qualify for Title 1 services?

    Our highly qualified reading/ intervention specialists use multiple assessments as well as teacher input to identify students recommended for the program. Parents/ guardians will be contacted if your child qualifies for Title 1 services. 

    What does Title 1 look like for my child?

    Students get direct instruction from reading/ intervention specialists in small group.  During this small group time, students will be working on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, developing vocabulary, building comprehension skills, written responses to text and much more!
