Title 1 and Sped Services

Just out of curiousity I am wondering if your students receiving services also receive Title 1 services? This year, my resource students were also included in Title groups (we have Title for reading) in addition to their special education services and it has been super successful!

Under ESSA, title 1 teachers can now meet sped minutes. We do an intervention block for each grade level where all specialists go to that one grade level, and each specialist and classroom teacher has a different intervention or enrichment group.

I've been able to put some of my kids into their groups so that we can group kids more by skill need than label, and also keep the low groups somewhat even (vs. when all IEPs had to be with me, sometimes I'd end up with 8 in a group while title would have 3). This has somewhat solved the problem of kids getting an IEP and then literally getting worse/less interventions (often in the past when getting an IEP just meant moving from the title group to the sped group, kids would move from something like a 3 student group meeting for 45 minutes to a 7 student group meeting for 30 minutes).

We haven't really gotten to the point where kids with IEPs actually get more/better services than kids just in title though. I would like to see that happen, even if it's not me that gets to teach the smallest groups. Our title 1 department is so well funded and is able to provide so much for kids that if reading is the main/only issue, kids are truly better off not getting the IEP as it just adds too much "red tape."

For example, one of our grade levels has a cohort of really low kids and the building just decided that they're now going to do a 60 minute small group intervention block for that grade level. They also bought and trained the title teachers on a tier 3 intervention program that's actually written for kids with dyslexia. I can't put 5 hours pull out just for reading for my kids because that would push them into the 40-79% in gen ed placement, which is a huge no-no in my area. I also don't have the evidence to amend their IEPs to include double the service time they're getting now. The kids who don't have IEPs have way more flexibility to get what they actually need.

Yes, our students can receive both spec ed services and Title I services. The Title I is in addition to IEP minutes.

This is the same for us. Only special ed teachers can provide the minutes of instruction on the IEP, but we can have additional if needed. We call it double-dipping and use it especially in the area of reading as needed.

No, our Title 1 teacher doesn’t take any students who are on IEPs for Reading. She has smaller groups than I do, a larger room and recently got a para!
