Haverhill Public Schools is a Proud Title One District!
Overview of Title I
Title I Part A of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act provides financial assistance to districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. The priorities of Title I are to:
- Strengthen the core program in schools and provide academic and/or support services to low-achieving students at the preschool, elementary, middle, and high school levels;
- Provide evidence-based programs that enable participating students to achieve the learning standards of the state curriculum frameworks;
- Elevate the quality of instruction by providing eligible staff with substantial opportunities for professional development; and,
- Involve parents/guardians of participating public and private school children as active partners in their children’s education at school through open, meaningful communication, training, and, as appropriate, inclusion in decision-making processes.
Right to Know
Families/guardians of students attending a Title I school may request, and the district will provide in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of their student’s classroom teachers, including, at a minimum:
- Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
- Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
- Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher; and
- Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
A school shall provide to each individual family/guardian:
- Information on the student’s level of achievement and academic growth in each of the state academic assessments, as required under Title I, and
- Timely notice that the student has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet state licensure requirements.
Please contact your student’s school with questions about school improvements, interventions, and opportunities to volunteer/become involved.
