Robert Treat Academy's Annual Notice to Parents

Title I of NCLB requires notification of parents with children in schools with Title I programs at the beginning of each school year of their right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teachers and of any paraprofessional providing support to their children. "This notice must be provided in a language that the parents can understand." The school must respond to their request for information in a timely manner.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires the schools to provide to the parents, at a minimum, the following information:

  • Whether their child's teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which he or she is providing instruction.
  • Whether their child's teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status through which the state qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived.
  • The baccalaureate degree major the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, the qualifications of the paraprofessional.

Individual letters to parents whose children are eligible for Title I services are sent home during the month of September. All Robert Treat Academy faculty members are certified by the State of New Jersey and meet federal highly qualified standards. Robert Treat holds an annual meeting with parents of students who are receiving Title I services. Parents are notified of their children's progress through monthly interim narratives and bi-monthly progress reports. Methods of parent communication include monthly newsletters which include both schoolwide and individual classroom news.
