Parents Right to Know - Title I School-Wide Programs

As a parent of a student in the Lake Havasu Unified School District #1, under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, you have a right to know the professional qualifications of the teachers who instruct your child. The No Child Left Behind Act gives you the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether the State of Arizona has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subject he or she teaches.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency permit 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, if so, the subject of the degrees.
  • Whether any instructional aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact the front office at 505-6080.

Students are tested on DIBELS three times a year. Results are sent home along with suggestions for parents.

Kindergarteners are screened on a teacher created screening before being placed on a class list so that students are more evenly dispersed in classrooms. Students in grades 1-3 are tested each quarter on High Frequency Words to determine their progress. Parents are given a list of words to review at home.

The Quick Phonics Screener is administered to Strategic and Intensive students at the beginning of the year and the end to see overall progress on blending word patterns and multi-syllable words. Results are discussed at the first Parent/Teacher Conference.

Students take the STAR test each quarter to determine their independent reading ranges.

In April, students take the Terra Nova and AIMS assessments. Results are given to parents at the beginning of the next school year.
