Snow Hill Elementary School receives Title I funding to ensure all students receive a high-quality education. Title I federal funding provides supplemental materials of instruction, salaries for resource and coach positions, Professional Development for teachers, and opportunities for parents to be engaged in their child’s education. At Snow Hill Elementary School, our monies are responsible for the placements of Math and Literacy Instructional Coaches, and a Reading Resource Teacher. We take pride in offering programs that have been researched and proven to make a profound impact on student achievement. Current curriculum includes Origo 2.0, American Reading Company’s 100 Book Challenge, Lucy Calkin’s Units of Study, and Wilson Fundations. Title I also supplies our school with the materials necessary to collaborate with parents during our Title I Parent Engagement events held throughout the school year. In addition, a Parent Advisory Committee meets several times a year to guide and plan events like our Back to School Bash, our One School One Book school-wide book club, and our College and Career Carnival. As a Title 1 school, parents have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher, and of paraprofessionals who provide instructional services to their children. Please join us this year at our many Parent Engagement Activities, and if you have any questions, or are interested in joining the Parent Advisory Committee, please contact Kristina Belcher, Title One Specialist, at 410-632-5210.
