TheTitle I School in Riverview School District Summary
Verner Elementary School is the school in Riverview School District that will receive Title I services for the 2015-2016 school year. These services are provided to students in grades K-6 who are in need of additional support in reading and/or mathematics. Title I teachers at Verner are Mrs. Lori Ruggiero (Reading Specialist), Mrs. Jennifer Clontz (ReadingSpecialist and Math) and Mrs. Jill Waffensmith (Mathematics).
The reading and math support teachers at Verner identify students through performance assessments including retellings, running records (Rigby), AIMSweb assessments in grades K-6, STAR testing, Classroom DiagnosticTests, the PSSA’s in reading and mathematics, GMADE, and teacher recommendations. Support is provided to students individually or in small groups.
Verner Elementary sets a goal for student improvement to be obtained through end-of-the-year assessments. Students are successful when they fall within the proficient or advanced range of achievement based on the data obtained using the previously mentioned assessments. Verner fell within these expectations again this year but continues to work to see student growth every year.
The Riverview School District is very pleased with the success of our students with the services that are being provided. If you have any questions about the Title I program, please call the Title I Coordinator, Mrs. Mary Ann Plance at 412-828-1800,extension 3021
