Title I Program
Title I, Part A is a federal program designed “To provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps."
Schoolwide Title Schools
The Title I program is a federally funded program that provides funding for additional support to close the achievement gaps. Title I funds are allocated to school districts according to poverty data from the U.S. census. School buildings receive their Title I funds according to the percent of students receiving free and reduced lunches. In Yelm Community Schools, all six elementary schools are designated as Schoolwide Title Schools.
Right to Request Teacher and Para Qualifications
All parents and guardians have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher(s) or instructional paraeducators. If you request this information, the district will provide you with the following:
- Whether the teacher has met Washington teacher certification requirements for the grade level and subjects in which the teacher provides instruction;
- Whether the teacher is teaching an emergency or other provisional status for which Washington qualifications or certification has been waived;
- The college major of the teacher and any graduate degree of certificate; and
- Whether your child is receiving Title I services form paraprofessionals, and if so whether those paraprofessionals meet state/federal requirements of Every Student Succeeds Act.
If you would like to request this information, please contact your school office.
If you need assistance accessing resources, please contact us.
