Title 1 for Parents/Guardians

Overview
Title I is a federal program that provides funds to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children who are disadvantaged to support a variety of services. Its overall purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.

Highly Qualified Teachers
Through federal education law, parents have the right to request information on the professional qualifications of the teachers and paraprofessionals in our schools.  If you are interested in learning about this information, please contact your school administrator.  Upon this request, you will receive a detailed explanation of the licensing, education, and experience of each of our teachers.  You will also receive information regarding the qualifications of the paraprofessionals at our schools.

Our staff understands that learning is a life-long pursuit.  Teachers in AOS 93 continually strive to improve by taking part in professional development, graduate courses, conferences and professional learning.
