Title 1

The Panther Valley Elementary School receives federal and state funding to enhance the reading skills of students at the school.  We are a School-Wide Title I program, which means all students may receive some type of support.  Some students participate in interventions to address deficits in reading or math skills, while others may get acceleration in particular areas.

We have two Title I specialists that work with our students.  Two of our specialists focus on reading and the other focuses on math skills.  We use a wide array of tools to help accurately assess and instruct our students.  In reading, we use the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment, DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills), and the IRLA (Independent Reading Level Assessment) to help all readers show growth in their reading skills.  In math, we closely assess students' knowledge of concepts using our MyMath curriculum.

You will receive notification if your child is working with one of our Title I specialists.  If you would like to learn more about Title I or feel your child may benefit from meeting with a Title I specialist, please call the school and ask to speak to one of our fantastic specialists.

Mrs. Szczecina and Mrs. Scarcella are currently serving our students.
