Title One Information

Schoolwide Title One Philosophy
It is our belief that each student must have a good foundation in Communication Arts and Mathematics. We believe that when a student has this strong foundation he/she is going to succeed and excel. We believe it is important that each parent, teacher, staff member and administrator have high expectations for each child. We believe learning is a lifelong commitment that does not end after high school. We hope to instill a love for learning by helping students develop goals and encouraging each student to strive to reach their goals. 
We believe, when we look at what the future holds for our students, technology will be an important aspect in which each student must have a strong foundation. We believe it is important for technology to go hand-in-hand and enrich our curriculum rather than stand-alone. We believe it is important to integrate technology into our curriculum.

Parent Right to Know Letter

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Our district is required to inform you of information that you, according to the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (Public Law 114-95), have the right to know.

Upon your request, our district is required to provide to you in a timely manner, the following information:  

  • Whether your student’s teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.  

  • Whether your student’s teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.  

  • Whether your student’s teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.  

  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

In addition to the information that parents may request, a building receiving Title I.A funds must provide to each individual parent:  

  • Information on the level of achievement and academic growth of your student, if applicable and available, on each of the State academic assessments required under Title I.A.  

  • Timely notice that your student has been assigned, or has been taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who has not met applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.

Title I Parental Involvement Plan

The Shelby Co R-4 Elementary faculty and staff believe the education of all children is a cooperative effort between parents and school. We also believe there is a direct correlation between parent involvement and a student’s success in school. Based on this premise, Clarence and Shelbina Elementary is committed to involving parents in a variety of activities throughout the school year. The Parental Involvement Plan has been developed jointly between school representatives and parents; it describes the school’s expectations for parental involvement in our school.

The Shelby Co. R-4 School District encourages parent-school cooperation through parent-teacher conferences which promote two-way communication between home and school; open houses in district schools that provide parents with the opportunity to see the school facilities, meet the faculty, get information about the school’s participation in Title I and observe the program on a first hand basis; other school activities which promote parental involvement, such as book fairs, family nights, Preschool group meetings, etc.

For the benefit of children, the Shelby Co. School District believes parents have a responsibility to encourage their child’s career in school by the following means:

    *Supporting the schools in requiring that the children observe all school rules and regulations and by accepting their own responsibility for children’s willful in-school behavior     *Sending children to school with proper attention to their health, personal cleanliness and dress     *Maintaining an active interest in pupils’ daily work and making it possible for the pupil to complete assigned homework by providing a quiet place and suitable conditions for study     *Reading all communications from the school and signing and returning them promptly when required     *Cooperating with the school in attending conferences set up for the exchange of information on the child’s progress in school     *Scheduling family matters to minimize interference with school time

            Each year at Open House, our Title 1 teacher will inform parents that CE/SE is a Title 1 school. She will share the requirements of the program and the parent’s right to be involved. Additional resources to support student learning will be made available to parents throughout the year.

Information related to school and parent programs, meetings, and other activities will be sent to the parents in a format and language the parents can understand. Parents will be informed of our school activities through local and school media, flyers, reminders, the school website and classroom newsletters.

Shelby Co R-4 Elementary Schools will assist parents in understanding Missouri’s academic content standards, MAP tests, and how to work with educators to improve the achievement of the children.

Title One Parent Surveys will be sent out annually in order to gather parental input concerning the Title One program. Information from parents will be reviewed by Title teachers and staff.

CE/SE believes the Title One Parent-Student-School Learning Compacts are a critical component of a comprehensive parent-involvement plan. These compacts outline how parents, students, and school staff will share in the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. Working together, we will provide quality educational opportunities for our students.
