Slade Guidelines for Success

Bullying Parent Handout

Slade Elementary School is a school-wide program that receives extra funding through Title I federal funds. With these funds we have been able to hire highly qualified reading and math intervention teachers to work with small groups of students. Having this highly qualified staff allows us to reduce student to teacher ratios and give all students the attention they require. 

Being a school-wide Title I school has also allowed us to purchase extra learning materials to enhance our students’ education. Providing this early intervention is an important key to success for children. At Slade, extra assistance is provided as early as possible in a student’s career in order to support a strong educational start.
