Title 1

  • Title I is a Federal program that provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality enriched programs that meet the individual needs of children, families, and staff. The purpose of this program is to ensure that all students 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 state academic assessments.

    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 education is a responsibility shared by school, family, and community.

    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 your 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.
