Parent Involvement

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Harrison School District Two's Title I program believes that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share the school's dedication to education success for all students. We recognize that a student's educatio is a responsibility shared by school, family, and community. To view the Title I District Parent Involvement Policy click here.

 

Parents Right to Know

As a parent in a Title I school, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child(ren), including:

  • Whether the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has licensed or endorsed your student's teacher for the grades and subjects being taught
  • Whether CDE has decided you student's teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances
  • The teacher's college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the subject(s) of the degrees
  • Whether any teacher's aide or similar paraprofessional provides services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

Additionally, if a student in a Title I school is being instructed--for longer than four consecutive weeks--by a teacher/substitute who does not fulfill the "highly qualified" requirements as set forth by NCLB, a letter informing the student's parents of this information must be sent in a timely manner.

 


The Colorado Parent Information and Resource Center (CPIRC)

CPIRC is a state Parent Information Resource Center located in Denver. It is funded by a grant from the United States Department of Education to assist parents in all schools in Colorado. The center offers research-based parental practices and programs to improve student achievement, training and support services to families and educators, coordinates collaboration efforts and informs parents of the NCLB Act.
