The Dresden Title I Ninth Grade Transition Tutoring Program helps qualifying students with reading, writing, and mathematics that will parlay into helping them access all areas of study. Students are chosen by using standardized test scores, grades, and teacher/parent referrals. Students in tenth grade are assessed depending on the number of ninth grade students receiving services.
During the summer, Hanover High School and Richmond Middle School have worked together to setup a Title I Ninth Grade Transition Summer Tutoring Program in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics at Hanover High School over the summer of 2018 for incoming ninth grades students both from RMS and tuition students from outside the District. This will work in conjunction and mirror our Title I ninth grade transition tutoring program at Hanover High School during the school year. This project will prepare our most at-risk, Title I eligible students in reading, writing, and math to meet the competency level expectations at the high school level.
Families whose students have been identified as eligible at the end of this eighth grade year, will be contacted to participate in the program from August 13-24, 2018. We plan on having a total of 10-15 Title I eligible students. Families will be invited to a meet and greet prior to the two-week program to get acquainted with the goals of the Title I summer tutoring and the expectations of the program. Resources for parents will be given out at this time and the ability to meet with tutors. The program will run M-Th 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tutors will be there 8-1 p.m.
