Winnisquam District receives a grant annually from IASA Title I to provide supplementary kindergarten for incoming eligible students, after school spring tutoring for eligible students, intervention for students at USS, SS, and the WRMS, and tutoring for transition grade levels.
Kindergarten PLUS provides an additional half day of Kindergarten for eligible students. This year, we have the K+ students stay with the same teacher for their kindergarten class, also.
In addition, the Title I grant is paying for the Title I Coordinator of School Improvement (CSI) at USS, SS, and the middle school. At the elementary level, the Title I CSI will work with classroom teachers, Reading Specialist and Interventionist determining, from STAR testing and other accommodations triangulated data, which students need intervention plans. At the same time, they will determine which intervention needs to be used. After five to six weeks, progress monitoring will be done to determine if there is progress on the intervention plan, and determine if the intervention goals have been met. At the middle school level, the Title I CSI will work with classroom teachers, math coach, and literacy coach.
On this website we have information that is important for all Title I parents. Please take a minute to read the Parent Involvement Policy, as we are always looking for input from our Title I parents. In addition, each month, on the third Friday of the month, we send home a Title I newsletter. We will also have them on the website of each school and the district.

Parent Involvement Policy
After consultation with and review by parents, SAU #59 developed this written policy to ensure that parents are involved in the planning, design, and implementation of programs.
Parents of Title I students in the Winnisquam Regional School District will be consulted through a questionnaire at least once annually to assess the status of current Title I programs and request recommended modifications, additions and deletions for the upcoming project year. Review of this Parent Involvement Policy will be part of the annual survey. Each spring, all parents will be encouraged to join the planning team to review, evaluate and improve the parent involvement policy.
Participation of parents in their own child's programs will be encouraged through completion of a parent survey of the child's skills, interests, and learning habits as part of the development of an annual plan for the student. Quarterly progress reports at the middle school and trimester at the elementary schools and the opportunity for conferences will, along with the monthly Title I newsletter, provide parents with periodic updating and allow for sharing information and ideas.
The annual open house and Title I meeting at each school allows the parent to learn more about the program and visit informally with staff in the Title I site. When parents receive the annual survey, they will be invited to join the planning team that will evaluate and make improvements to the following year's program.
Parents are encouraged to call and/or come in to speak with tutors or the project manager any time they have questions or concerns.
