Title I Assurances Notification for FY23


Our school is a Title I eligible school. The purpose of Title I is to “provide all children

significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close

achievement gaps” *


As a recipient of federal funds, we are required to adhere to some annual assurances,

including notifying families about a few things each year.


First, parents of students in Title I schools have the right to request information regarding any

State or local educational agency policy regarding student participation in any Federal, State,

or locally required assessments.


Second, we are required to let parents know if a student has been assigned or been taught for

four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification

for the assignment.


Third, parents have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications

of their child’s classroom teacher, including State licensing criteria and college major. Also, if

a student is being supported by a paraeducator, parents in Title I schools have the right to

request information about the qualifications of the paraeducator.


We are also required to provide information and get input about how we use our Title I funds.

During our open house this fall, parents will have the opportunity to meet the teachers who

provide Title I services. Please plan to visit these teachers to learn more about the services

they provide and to share your thoughts with us.


If you have any questions or concerns about these assurances, please contact the principal.
