Title I at Avis

Title I at Avis

The Jersey Shore Area School District receives Federal Title I funding each year.  The purpose of Title I funding is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.  JSASD uses Title I funds to provide five highly qualified reading specialists across the district at the elementary level.  Three of these reading teachers are located at Jersey Shore Elementary.  The primary role of our Title I reading teachers is to provide intervention to students in grades K-3 who are not meeting benchmarks in reading.  Qualifying students are determined by their performance on DIBELS Next, an assessment used to measure the acquisition of early literacy skills.  DIBELS benchmark goals are target scores that represent adequate reading skill for a particular grade and time of year.  Students whose scores fall below the benchmark goal qualify to receive Title I reading instruction in addition to their regular classroom instruction.  For more information on DIBELS Next, visit the website at https://dibels.org/dibelsnext.html.

Mrs. Jennifer Ingraham is the Reading Department Coordinator for the district and is a Title I Reading Teacher here at Jersey Shore Elementary.  Mrs. Ingraham can be contacted at jingraham@jsasd.org.
