Title I Parent Involvement
We are proud to partner with you in educating your child(ren). Helping your child to succeed academically is impossible without your participation. For that reason, the staff would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the Annual Title I Parental Involvement meeting to learn about and discuss various Title I programs offered at the school.
As a Title I school, we follow federal guidelines related to teacher qualifications and staffing, as defined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The law affords you the opportunity to learn more about the professional credentials of your child’s teachers and we are happy to provide this information to you. At any time, you may ask the school for the following information:
• Whether your child’s teacher meets state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject they are teaching;
• Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived; and,
• What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration.
Additionally, you may ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your child receives such assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications.
Our staff is committed to helping your child develop academically and to promoting their success in school and beyond. This commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled.
