Title I – Parent Right to Know
To the Parents of PVS Students:
Prescott Valley School is committed to providing all children with teachers who are well-trained and certified/highly qualified in the areas that they teach. High quality professional development is made available for all teachers throughout the school year to increase their professional knowledge.
Prescott Valley School is pleased to inform you that all of the classroom teachers assigned to teach your child meet or exceed the qualifications needed to be rated as Highly Qualified Teachers. Our teachers are all fully certified to teach in the areas they have been assigned and are eligible for the Highly Qualified designation due to having taken and passed required licensure exams and/or having taken advanced coursework or earned advanced degrees.
Specific additional information regarding the qualifications of your child’s teacher may be obtained by contacting Margaret Ferrier in the business office at 928-772-8744.
Title I Targeted Assistance Program
Per NCLB Statute, the school provides appropriate services based on each student’s Title I status. Prescott Valley School is a Title I Targeted Assistance School. If you would like more information regarding our Title I program, please contact the school administration.
Homeless Children and Youth
Districts must ensure that homeless children and youth (HCY) in transition have access to the same educational opportunities as housed students, including opportunities to meet the same challenging state academic standards.
Schools must disseminate a notice of homeless children’s education rights in schools, to families, domestic abuse and runaway shelters, soup kitchens, and wherever services to homeless children and families are offered.
Schools are required to notify parents of HCY of the following rights:
1. The availability of a local district staff person as a liaison for HCY.
2. Immediate enrollment and school participation, even if educational and medical records and proof of residency are not available.
3. The availability of educational opportunities and related opportunities for homeless students (preschool to age 21), including unaccompanied youth.
4. Enrollment and transportation rights, including transportation to the school of origin. “School of origin” is defined as the school the child attended when permanently housed or when last enrolled.
5. Written explanation of why HCY are placed in a school other than the school of origin or school requested by the parent when appealed using the school’s local dispute resolution process.
6. Meaningful opportunities for parents to participate in the education of their children.
