TITLE I INFORMATION

The Blackhawk School District provides Title I services to Blackhawk Intermediate School students. At the primary level, grades K through second, the district operates a Targeted Title I Reading program. The federal government under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 funds this program.   Students are referred for this intervention by teachers and parents based on classroom and test data.  To have your child screened for this program, please contact Mrs. LeDonne, Mrs. Borroni, Mrs. Payne, or Mrs. Leiper via email or call 724-843-5050.

 

 

We are committed to supporting your child as they continue their Blackhawk learning experience at home!  In addition to the "Bonus Bags" we sent home Friday, March 13th, we will provide videos below to help your child stay engaged with literacy during this time.   

 

Some Videos to help your child practice what they know!

Annual Notification Regarding Qualifications of Title I Teachers & Paraprofessionals

As a parent of a student who attends a school receiving Title I funds, you have a right under federal law to request information about the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child and the Title I paraprofessionals who assist them. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gives you the right to ask for the following information about each of your child's classroom teachers and their paraprofessional assistants.
 

  • Whether the state has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.

  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency license or other provisional status by which state licensing criteria have been waived.

  • The teacher's college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the subject of the degrees.

  • Whether any instructional aides or paraprofessionals provide services to your child in the Title I program and their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact the building principal.
