District 60 currently serves the K-12 student population through
our Title One Program application. All but one of our school sites
implements a school-wide program with their free and reduced lunch
rate at 40% or greater. The only exception is the high school which
is currently running a targeted assisted program.
Our Title One plan was written to support the District Rising
Star Plan and our focus of Response to Intervention at all our
Title One sites. The Title One program provides research-based
intervention supplemental reading and mathematics support based on
student need. Title One serves students who are testing at or below
the 25% but not receiving Special Education Services.
Intervention Programs used include:
- Voyager Passport / Spanish Voyager Pasaporte (primary)
- Corrective (intermediate-middle school grades)
- FASTT Math ( elementary level currently)
- Title One Reading Certified staff and Math certified teachers are providing intervention program instruction and /or professional development support for classroom teachers both with intervention and improved core instruction.
- Read 180 is also offered for some of the Title One served students (middle schools/ high school)
- System 44 is an intensive intervention for those students not ready for Read 180 ( middle schools / high school).
- Expert 21 is used as a supplemental reading program at the high school.
- Middle/ High School Summer Bridge program targets grades 8 and
9 bridging students from middle to high school with focus on both
reading and mathematics. Expert 21 is used for the reading program
and Math Navigator is used in conjunction with Compass learning
for the math program. This program targets students who are just
below the cut score identified for general Algebra One and
Freshman Literature course. Student falling below the identified
cut score for each subject are placed in a double block course
that includes intervention support as well as core subject study.
The summer program helps get more students ready for the single
period class options. Ninth graders who did not pass Algebra one
get supplemental support to address areas of deficit to attempt to
pass the end of course exam and become eligible for Geometry as
- Title One funds are also allocated to support benchmark and
progress monitoring assessment tools. The district sets aside
professional development funds to support reform for each
school-wide program. Differentiated Instruction strategies have
been a focus topic to support the Response to Intervention
implementation and better meet the learning needs of all students
in all core subject areas. Funds are also set aside to support
Parent Involvement both at the school level and at the District
Welcome Center. Parent workshops are offered to support reading
and math strategies. Each school has a parent involvement plan
associated with the Title One program.
Each school-wide program receives a low income per pupil
allocation to support their School Improvement Plan found in their
Rising Star Plans. Each school building leadership team prioritizes
needs and provides additional professional development and
intervention resources to support their reform strategies
identified in their SIP plan. The targeted assisted school also
receives support for the targeted population they serve.
We also have four non-public schools that run targeted assisted
Title One reading programs. Two programs use the Voyager reading
program, one uses an online program Study Island and the high
school is using Math Navigator with math as their focus. Also the
non public programs are running extended day supplemental programs
at three locations.
