NCLB Information

Parent Notification - Title I

In accordance with The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), at the beginning of each school year we are required to notify the parents of each student attending a school receiving any Title I, Part A, funds that they may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child's teacher(s) in core academic subject areas and/or paraprofessional. The notices and information provided to parents must be in an understandable and uniform format and be provided in a language that the parents can understand. Enclosed are model notices that you may choose to send out individually, add to your school's newsletter or website. These notices will serve as parents' notification of rights to request and receive the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teacher(s) and/or paraprofessional.

If you have any questions regarding classroom teachers, please call Kristin Gaeta at (714) 424-7550.
If you have any questions regarding paraprofessionals, please call Christi Winslow at (714) 424-5049.

Thank you for your support.
