This is to inform you that West Elementary currently offers a Schoolwide Title I Program. This notification is required by
Section 1112 of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Title I is a federal program based upon income levels of families
whose children attend these schools. The program ensures that students are equipped to meet high standards of
academic performance. Schoolwide Title I resources support schools with a high percentage of low-income families, but
allow services to be provided to any student in that school. Schoolwide Title I programs use funds to provide such
interventions as before and/or after school instructional services, summer intervention programs, more instructional time
and enrichment opportunities for students, and increased professional development for staff members. We believe that
we can offer your child the best possible education by using this model in our school.
As a requirement of the law, our school will be holding an annual Title 1 parent meeting on Monday, October 7, 2013, at
3:45 p.m. in conjunction with our PTO meeting and Thursday, October 10
at 5:45 and 6:45 p.m. before and after the
Grade AR Pizza Night. You also have the right to request additional meetings. Please contact the school office
for additional information.
As a parent of a student at West Elementary, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom
teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to
request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher. The law also requires the district to give you this
information in a timely manner upon request. Listed below is the information about which you have the right to ask for

Please contact Beth Wheat, 520-2419 or eliza[email protected] if you would like to receive any of this information.
As a part of our Schoolwide Title I Program, we will also be offering you expanded opportunities to become involved in
your child’s educational program and school. We will offer Family Literacy Activities throughout the school year and
encourage you to attend. We encourage you to visit our school, attend parent-teacher conferences, and communicate
with your child’s teacher and other school staff regarding any questions or concerns you may have. There is a great
deal of information on parent involvement to access through the Colorado Parent Involvement Resource Center at
Together we can make this an exceptionally rewarding and successful year for your child!
