Soldier Hollow has been awarded a High Performing School Award for Title One Programs. Many thanks to our teachers and to the hard working students who demonstrated that there are no limits to the accomplishments they can achieve.
Title I Award
Our Title I program coordinator is Lori Christensen. She works with students in reading, language acquisition and mathematics, in grades Kindergarten through 6. DIBELS testing at the beginning of each year determines the students reading level, and our new iReady program assesses language arts and mathematics abilities. Most of the Title I work with students is on a one on one basis.
Soldier Hollow has been selected as a Utah State Title I School of Recognition for 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-2014, and 2014-2015 school years. Our ultimate goal is to graduate students out of Title I programs, once the support has increased academic abilities, and students are performing at grade level.
Our Title I program begins with newly enrolled students that are assessed upon entering SHCS. Student needs assessments continue for the first two weeks of school, identifying each students’ ability in LA and Math, to ensure all needs are addressed immediately. Instruction for Title I is generally 1:1, as well as classroom “push-in” support. Weekly progress monitoring takes place for each child and classroom teachers have access to data. This enables the classroom teacher to have immediate access to their students’ performance.
The Title I teacher/coordinator is highly qualified for her position, has a degree in special education and holds a reading endorsement. She also seeks continuous professional development in reading interventions, autism, math strategies and more.
