Title I is a federally funded program that gives grant monies to schools to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Title I is designed to assist elementary students with reading, language arts, and/or math skills. Duneland School Corporation has four schools that receive or will receive Title I funding this year.
The Duneland School Corporation strives to foster student success and positive home-school relationships. Additional information about Title I, parent meetings and its corresponding activities will be sent home each fall. If you are interested in learning more about Title I policies, serving on the District Title I committee, or your school’s Title I committee, please contact your child’s principal.
PARENTS’ RIGHT TO KNOW
[Information about a Teacher’s Qualifications as Required by [Section 1111(h)(6) ESEA.]
We are very proud of our teachers and feel they are ready for the coming school year and are prepared to give your child a high-quality education. As a Title I school, we must meet federal rules related to teacher qualifications as defined in ESSA. These rules allow you to learn more about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials. We are happy to provide this information to you in a timely manner. At any time, you may ask:
- Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas taught;
- Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which Indiana qualifications and licensing criteria are waived;
- What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration;
- Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals/Title I aides, and if so, their qualifications.
If at any time your child has been taught for four (4) or more consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified, you shall be notified by the school of this information.
Our staff is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he/she needs to succeed in school and beyond. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals/Title I aides are highly skilled.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s principal.
