Title I

As a Title I school, we have the opportunity to strengthen our program to meet the needs of all of our students with the federal support of Title I funds. Funding is based on the number of students who have free lunch. We are actively addressing the following parent, guardian and community involvement Title I requirements because we know a working partnership is crucial for our students to succeed.

What is Title 1?

If you have questions, or need more information, please contact Principal Deleon at or 801.481.4846.


Understanding the School System

As a Title I school we:

  • work with parents and guardians to understand and navigate the school system;
  • share information about the standards for learning determined by the state,
  • the materials and programs we use to teach those standards, and the tests we use to show how students are progressing;
  • and inform you about your child’s academic progress throughout the year.

Communication with parents and community is a focus of our school and we value the different ways parents contribute to the success of their children. To enhance the way parents are already supporting their children’s academic success at home, we will offer materials and ideas that guardians might additionally use.


Parents' Right to Know

Teacher Qualifications 

a) Information for parents.

(1) At the beginning of each school year, an LEA that receives funds under this subpart must notify the parents of each student attending a Title I school that the parents may request. In addition, the LEA will provide the parents, on request and promptly, information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teachers, including, at a minimum, the following:

(i) Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.

(ii) Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or another provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

(iii) Whether the teacher is teaching in the discipline field of the teacher's certification.

(iv) Whether the parent's child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

(2) A school that participates under this subpart must provide to each parent -

(i) Information on the level of achievement and academic growth, if applicable and available, of the parent's child on each of the State academic assessments required under section 1111(b)(2) of the ESEA; and

(ii) Timely notice that the parent's child has been assigned or taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.


Shared Decision Making

Parents will be involved in making school decisions, writing school plans, and assessing the effectiveness of school programs. They will also work with the school to plan Parent Involvement activities. Please contact the front office for more information on how to be a part of this important work. We need your ideas!!

Home & School Partnership

Our school has a variety of formal ways to develop the home/school partnership such as Back to School Night, Parent-Teacher Conferences, School Community Council (SCC), Parent Teacher Association/Organization (PTA), school newsletters, and other such opportunities. Please know that we also value the informal yet important ways we work together through phone calls, emails, and visiting before and after school. We look forward to working with you this year!! Please download the Home/School Compact which describes the commitments we are making to you, to see your child succeed.

Student Progress

We are so excited to tell you that our school made the progress on state testing that we needed to. The hard work of our students, teachers, parents, school personnel, and community members paid off to end last year successfully.

As a Title I school, we are required to show each year that students are progressing in math and reading/language arts. Title I federal funding supports student learning in these areas. The learning expectations grow every year so that each student is ready for middle school and high school to prepare for college and a career. Our students and teachers are now focused on this year’s learning standards to see another year of success.
