The Title I program provides extra help to students to assist them in meeting state and local education standards. At Belvedere Elementary Title I provides extra resources for our school including:
Step Up Math (SUM)
This program is to increase the mathematics achievement of students in Title I schools. Title I SUM teachers work with classroom teachers to assess student learning and to plan instruction that enables students to understand mathematical concepts, apply problem solving strategies, and develop computational skills. SUM teachers also provide ongoing professional learning for teachers in their schools. They work in classrooms as well as with small groups of students. Instruction is based upon the FCPS Program of Studies (POS), the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL), and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards.
