• Title I School-wide Status

    What does this mean for Vermillion Elementary students?

    Title I School-wide status allow our school to assist all children, particularly the lowest achieving children, to meet the high state academic achievement standards. We have implemented multi-tiered systems of support to redesign instructional delivery for all students.  

    This design includes:

    • STAR Reading – daily reading intervention program
    • STAR Math-daily math intervention program
    • Chameleon Character -School-wide behavior expectations 

    In compliance with Title I regulations, Vermillion Elementary School agrees to:

    • Be governed by the following statutory definition of parental involvement, and will carry out programs, activities, and procedures in accordance with this definition:
    • Involve the parents of children served in Title I, Part A in decisions about how Title I, Part A funds reserved for parental involvement are spent.
    • Jointly develop/revise with parents the school parental involvement policy and distribute it to parents of participating children and make available the parental involvement plan to the local community
    • Jointly conduct, with the involvement of parents, an annual evaluation of the content and effectiveness of the school’s parental involvement policy
    • Use the findings of the parental involvement policy evaluation to design strategies for more effective parental involvement, and to revise, if necessary, the school’s parental involvement policy
    • If the plan for Title I, Part A, developed under section 1112, is not satisfactory to the parents of participating children, the school will submit parent comments with the plan when the school submits the plan to the local educational agency
    • Provide to each parent an individual student report about the performance of their child on the State assessment in at least mathematics, language arts, and reading
    • Provide each parent timely notice when their child has been assigned or has been taught for four (4) or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified within the meaning of the term in section 200.56 of the Title I Final Regulations (67 Fed. Reg. 71710, December 2, 2002)
    • Provide each parent timely notice information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teachers and paraprofessionals, as described in section 1111(h)(6)(A)
