Hofstetter Elementary is a School-wide Title I School. This means all students in our building get timely academic intervention as soon as they might need it. If your student is struggling in reading or math, an extra scoop of instruction will be provided, immediately. Of course, you will be notified if your child needs intervention in reading or math; your classroom teacher will contact you.
This instruction is in addition to instruction provided by your child’s teacher. It is not a replacement of the core instruction provided in the classroom. Additional instruction focuses on the individual needs of the student and is provided only as long as needed. Students are monitored for progress regularly and exited as soon as they demonstrate mastery of the essential skills and concepts necessary.
The goal of a school-wide Title I intervention program is to instantly help students when they need it and provide them with additional opportunities for academic success.
We encourage you to have regular communication with your child’s teacher. Please consider this an open invitation. At any time, you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s teachers. (Sec 11111(h)(6)(A); 34 CFR 200.61(a). Our school board views the education of students as a cooperative effort among school, parents and the community.
Hofstetter’s mission is success for ALL students through early and research-proven interventions. Below is Hofstetter’s Parent/Student/School Compact. If you have any questions about Hofstetter’s Schoolwide Title I Program, please don’t hesitate to call or come see us. You may also join our informational ZOOM on October 12 at 5:00 pm.
