The Title I Program is offered this year school-wide at Monroeville Elementary School. All students can be serviced depending on need for extra assistance in reading. Students are selected based on need from assessements and recommendations of present and/or past teachers. The program focuses on skills taught in the classroom, but on a more individualized learning level.
The Monroeville Local School District receives Federal funds for the purpose of assisting with the instruction of our students. Activities may include schoolwide programs, such as summer school or after-school programs; and specialized personnel providing schoolwide reading and mathematics services. The district retains state and local funds to implement activities that are required by Federal, State or local law.
The Title I program is based on an annual assessment of educational needs. This assessment includes identification of educationally disadvantaged students in the public and private school in this district. Title I services are provided to all eligible, educationally disadvantaged students.
Title I funds are used to augment, not replace, state and local funds. The Board uses these funds to provide equivalent or comparable educational services in all school receiving Title I assistance.
Monroeville Elementary is designated as a schoolwide program and fulfills the program needs through the following teachers’ instructional programs: Mrs. Stephanie Houser

Developing Effective at Home Study Habits:
This a perfect opportunity to help your student develop strong work habits at home. When the school day is over many students still have homework assignments to complete and tests to prepare for. This is why it is so important for parents to help build these skills at home as well.
Dr. Erin Millard and Dr. Geoffery Putt of the Akron Children's Hospital have compiled a list of good study habits. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight just a few, which as teacher I think are key.
- Give your child a 30 minute break immediately after school to have a snack or play outside before beginning homework. Don't let your child watch TV shows or play a video game, becuase it is difficult for them to break away and may turn into an argument.
- Designate a specific place for homework and studying that's free from clutter and away from the TV and other distactions.
- Set aside time each day for homework. Encourage your student to stay at the desk or table for 30 minutes, even if they are finished. This will help to make study time a part of the daily routine.
- Provide a 2- 3 minute break every 15-20 minutes to help keep your child going. If a break last too long, it will be hard to get them back on track.
To help keep your child motivated throughout the year and studying hard, have some incentives. These do not need to be monetary or bribes, but things that they would choose to do. Self-selected incentives are more often effective.
It is very improatnt to acknowledge effort from your child. When they get a good grade from studying or improve a grade in a class, make it a big deal and show them that their hard work doesn't go unnoticed.
