Haaff Elementary is a Title I School
What does that mean for me?
It means that we receive Federal Funding (approximately $191k for the 2017-2018 school year) to support our students due to our high population of families who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
How is that money spent?
We use it to purchase technology for students to use, academic materials and are able to have extra staff to support reading, writing, and math (Interventionists, an extra teacher to lower class-size, full-time counselor, educational assistants, etc.)
What else does it mean?
It means that parents have the right to request information on teacher's qualifications including their state licensing criteria, their status, their certification, content areas, and the certifications of paraprofessionals, etc.
How can parents be involved?
Parents can join our PTO and there is a Parent/Family Engagement Committee that meets the 2nd Thursday of each month. These committees can have input in our Title I Compact, decisions, etc.
Who can I contact if I have more questions?
