Title I Information

July 19, 2022

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Federal law known as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires parents be informed when their child attends a Title I school.

This letter is to inform you that four district schools, Valley Center Intermediate, Abilene Elementary, West Elementary, and Wheatland Elementary all are School-Wide Title I schools for the 2022-2023 school year.

Each of these schools receives federal funds from the Title I program. The funds provide additional support to students in qualifying schools. As a requirement of receiving these funds, each year the district must provide parents with information on their rights. These rights include:

  1. Parents may request the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers.
  2. Parents may ask if their child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
  3. Information on the level of achievement of their child in each state academic assessment.
  4. Timely notice if their child has been taught by for more than four consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.
  5. Information regarding annual progress of your child’s school.

State assessment results show our Title I buildings have students who work at or above the state averages in both math and reading.  We use this data, along with data from local assessments, to target Title I resources proportionally to the areas that most need assistance.

We encourage you to participate in your child’s learning by becoming actively involved at his/her school. Please contact the school to find ways you can become involved.
