Title 1 Policy

Kent Prairie Elementary is a Title I School

 Title I, Part A is part of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Its goal is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards. 

Our Title I school qualifies for federal grant money which we use for additional staffing, parent involvement, staff development, and extended school day opportunities to help us meet that goal. This update is intended to provide you with important information about this law and your child’s education. 

Please contact the principal if you would like more information about Title I activities or parent participation at your child’s school.

District and School Report Card Information

Are you interested in knowing how your child’s school did on state assessments? How different groups of children performed compared to other schools? You can find out by going to washingtonstatereportcard.ospi.k12.wa.us. The Report Card contains information about test results as well as other statistics about the school.

Citizen Complaints

If you believe that the law that applies to federal programs like Title I has been violated, you have the right to file a complaint. First contact your child’s school. If you can’t reach a solution, you can file a Citizen Complaint through the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Information on how to do this is included in a link on this web page.

Right to Request Teacher and Paraeducator Qualifications

All parents and guardians have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher(s) or instructional paraeducators.  If you request this information about your child’s teacher, the district will provide you with the following:

  1. Whether the teacher has met Washington teacher certification requirements for the grade level and subjects in which the teacher provides instruction;
  2. Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status for which Washington qualifications or certification has been waived;
  3. The college major of the teacher and any graduate degree or certificate; and
  4. Whether your child is receiving Title I services from paraprofessionals, and if so, whether those paraprofessionals meet state/federal requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

If you request this information about your child’s instructional paraeducator, the district can provide information about the paraeducator’s professional qualifications as required by ESSA.
