Mrs. Bosley, Title 1
What is Title 1?
Houghton Elementary receives federal funding for
our Title 1 Program. Title 1 provides students
with additional help in reading and math.
Classroom teachers choose Title 1 students based
on grades, test scores and teacher observations.
Title 1 paraprofessionals also provide ESL
(English as a Second Language) to students
referred by their classroom teachers.
During the colder months (typically the middle
of October until the beginning of May), students
in 1st-5th grades may choose to attend the Early
Bird Program. Early Bird is offered
Monday-Thursday from 7:40 a.m. until the bell
rings. At Early Bird, students may use the
computers and iPads to strengthen reading and
math skills or play educational board games.
The Title 1 program has offered summer two-three
week programs in reading and math when funding
We encourage parent involvement with planning
and implementing the Title 1 Program. An Annual
Title 1 meeting is held each fall to provide
more specific program information to parents.
Title 1 teachers also meet with parents at
Parent Teacher conferences. In recent years,
Title 1 has sponsored special meetings such as
Pancakes for Parents and Family Math Night.
