    Right to Know

    You have the right to know about teaching qualifications of your child's classroom teacher in a school receiving Title 1 funds. The federal "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving Title 1 funds must notify parents that they may ask about the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teacher.

    The qualifications include:

    1. Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.
    2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.
    3. The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.
    4. Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

    We are pleased to report that 100% of teachers in the Rossford EVSD are considered “highly qualified” by the Ohio Department of Education.  


    District administrators invite comments from the public regarding the services listed below:

    Title I, Helping Disadvantaged Children Meet High Standards monies provide supplemental instruction in reading, language arts and mathematics to students at Glenwood, Eagle Point, and Rossford Junior High School. Funds support staff for services, such as academic intervention, and are also used for instructional supplies.

    Title II A, Teacher and Principal Quality, provides monies to “increase student achievement by elevating teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring and retention strategies.”

    All federally funded programs provide for participation of non-public schools.


    If you have ideas about how we can improve parent participation or allocate Title I funds reserved for parent involvement activities, please email them to mspangler@rossfordschools.org. Are you interested in attending a meeting to discuss the Title I Program and how we can better serve families? Please let us know. 

    The Rossford Exempted Village School District holds an annual Federal Programs public meeting and invites all interested community members to attend and provide input about how federal programs money received is allocated. Public notice of the meeting will be provided.
