The Title I grant-funded language arts teachers work with students and classroom teachers to develop reading and writing skills. The teachers work together to assess students' strengths and needs. They plan appropriate literacy instruction that helps students meet the challenging standards in the FCPS Program of Studies (POS) and the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL). Many schools also use Title I funds to serve the lowest-achieving first-grade students through the Reading Recovery® Program. Several schools implement Literacy Collaborative™, a professional development model designed to support best practices for classroom literacy instruction.
Literacy Collaborative™ is a professional development model designed to support literacy instruction in grades K-6. A school-based literacy coordinator works with students, teaches courses, and coaches teachers to help them implement reading and writing instruction. The literacy coordinator helps teachers refine their instruction to meet the literacy needs of all students.

Reading Recovery® is a short-term, early intervention program. It is designed for first grade children who are not learning to read and write as quickly as their peers. Children in Reading Recovery receive daily lessons from a specially trained teacher for approximately 12-20 weeks. The instruction is in addition to classroom reading and writing instruction.
The Title I grant-funded mathematics teachers provide instruction to help students develop math concepts. problem-solving strategies, and computational skills. Math teachers and classroom teachers collaboratively assess students' strengths and needs and plan appropriate mathematics instruction that helps students meet the challenging standards in the FCPS Program of Studies (POS) and the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL).
