Support at Hamilton - Title I information

  • Title I school teams meet with families each year to determine the best ways to work together to make sure all students get the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade level standards. The families and staff at Hamilton Elementary will annually discuss, review and revise the following Title I Schoolwide efforts. 

    Title I School Improvement Strategies

    Hamilton Elementary is committed to providing an atmosphere of learning for all students. We will focus on the following this year:

    • Increased achievement in reading and math
    • All staff will receive bi-monthly professional development on Catalyst Foundational Skills along with monthly coaching and feedback
    • Implementation of Character Strong curriculum
    • Engaging families in student learning

    Progress on these school efforts will be reported to families through email after each trimester.

    In the Classroom

    We will be:

    • Delivering Tier 1 instruction during whole group, small group learning, and independent structures
    • Providing small group instruction that meets students’  needs by their classroom teacher or support staff
    • Utilizing data to drive and inform instruction
    • Applying strategies to engage students in their learning
    • Building collaborative classrooms of learners and problem solvers

    At Home

    Families can do the following at home to support your student:  

    • Check your child’s backpack daily for learning and practice opportunities
    • Encourage regular attendance
    • Build reading routines at home with your child
    • Explore, learn and grow with your child by asking, “What are you learning at school?” Support them in their efforts to succeed
    • Share your ideas, ask questions and get involved at your child’s school events and volunteering. Consider becoming a member of the PTO or the Title I Parent Advisory Committee
    • Communicate regularly with your child’s teacher


    Our school is committed to keeping families informed.
