Three of Highland's four elementary schools (Johnston, Merkley, and Warren) receive Title I federal dollars under No Child Left Behind. These federal grant funds are used to provide additional academic support for students that are not performing at grade-level expectations in reading (primarily) and math. The District's Parent Involvement Policy provides more specific information about the program.
Dr. Sherri L. Mitchell is the Title I District Coordinator and collaborates with the district's Title 1 School-Level Coordinator and the elementary principals to provide the resources needed to help our Title I students achieve at grade level (or higher). The School Level Coordinator works with the Title I paraprofessionals and teachers in each building to provide research-based supplemental instruction to our Title I students.
Parents of students in Title I schools have the right to request and receive information regarding the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teachers as outlined in our district's Parents-Right-to-Know letter.
The spring "Books and Breakfast" parent information meeting was held May 9, 2013. If you weren't able to attend or would like to view the presentation again, please follow the link.
