Assurances for Parents
Parents’ Rights

All parents of students in Title I buildings have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of the students’ classroom teachers including the following:

  • Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject area taught;

  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which Ohio qualifications or licensing criteria are waived;

  • The teacher’s baccalaureate degree major, graduate certification, and field or discipline;

  • Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

Highly Qualified Teachers (HQT)

Coshocton City Schools’ instructional staff are 100% highly qualified.  All students are taught by professionals who have met Ohio’s requirements for credentialing and licensing. However, if that would change, the district would provide the following timely notifications to parents of students that the child has been assigned to be taught, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.


Title I Programming

Title I requires that funds be used to enable teachers to become highly qualified, for professional development for schools and districts in improvement status, parental involvement, and nonpublic school services. 

Coshocton High School and Coshocton Elementary School are currently Title I Schoolwide schools. This means that each building qualifies to permit all teachers in the building to deliver Title I services and permits more flexible funding for those students who are at risk for not meeting benchmarks in reading and math due to the high percentage of students who are economically disadvantaged. Both Coshocton High School and Coshocton Elementary School are then required to annually review and update their strategic Schoolwide Plan and Parent Involvement Plan, which is included on the district’s Consolidated Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP). 
Allowable Schoolwide use of funds include costs for employee salaries and benefits, professional development, instructional supplies and materials, equipment, travel and conference costs, refreshments for parent meetings and trainings, research-based activities, and other costs.  The focus is to enable all students to be proficient in reading and mathematics. 

Parents whose students are receiving direct service through Title I programs will be notified by the teacher and building principal. Parents are invited to participate in each building’s parent involvement programs, which are coordinated by teachers and building administrators. For more information, contact your child’s school.

Title I is a supplemental program which originated with federal legislation in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.  The purpose of Title I is to enable schools to provide opportunities for selected students to acquire the knowledge and basic skills contained in the content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children, particularly in reading.
Students are selected for service based on building level test data and data from consultation with staff and parents.
Title II-A funds must supplement district initiatives and activities that target certain priorities (such as school improvement) and be used for one or more required activities of recruiting, hiring retaining, professional developing, or advancing teachers.  

To receive the Rural Low Income School program grant, the district must be listed as eligible on the Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) list.  Funds may be used to improve teacher retention and recruitment, professional development, educational technology, parental involvement activities, activities authorized by Title IV-A Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities, activities authorized under Title I Part A, and activities authorized under Title III (English Language Acquisition for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students).
