Schoolwide Title I Program K-6
Notification of Teacher Qualifications & Assessment Participation
The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 gives parents/guardians the right to get information about professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers. Upon request, the superintendent will give parents/guardians the following information about their child’s teacher:
- Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
- Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional teaching certificate.
- The graduate certification or degrees held by the teacher and field of discipline. We will also, upon request, tell parents/guardians whether their child is being provided services by a paraprofessional and the qualification of such para.
Parents may also request from the superintendent information regarding any state or district policy regarding student participation in any assessments administered by the district.
Nebraska Education Profile (school data)
- The NEP (Nebraska Education Profile) is the initial transformation of data from the State of the Schools Report and is intended to help inform the public and school officials about school district performance. The NEP is also intended to inform parents, community leaders, and policymakers about our education system and to provide data needed for sound decision making by education leaders. The NEP will continue to grow and change as data is added to the system. As always your local school staff will be able to explain the data particular to your school and district.
Any student, for whom assessments indicate a need for intervention in the areas of reading and math, will receive instruction and assistance that will help them to attain a measure of success in the classroom. This will be accomplished through specific skill-related interventions decided on by the classroom teacher and the Title I coordinator.
Mode of Presentation:
Title I students will be served either in the regular classroom or through the pull-out method. The latter will be utilized to work with students on an individual basis or in a small group setting. For example, students may leave the room to learn a skill, to read orally, or to practice math facts.
Grades are not given in Title I. The Title I teacher confers with the classroom teacher concerning students grades’ in an effort to determine the needs of the students and methods of assistance. Communication between parents and the Title I teacher is maintained through phone calls, newsletters, parent conferences, annual parent meetings and progress reports.
