RE: Title I and Title II Required Notifications to Parents


Dear Parents,


Each school in the Lamar County School System is a Title I school. Each school receives Title I funds to provide instructional assistance to low-achieving students, professional learning for teachers, and parent involvement. In addition, each school receives Title IIA funds to provide funds to support effective instruction.

Parents’ Right to Know

The Lamar County School System is committed to continually seeking to improve instruction for our students. We hope that as a parent, you will become involved in our school improvement initiatives as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations. We encourage you to get to know your child's teacher, paraprofessional (if applicable), and the class routines and expectations.


In compliance with the requirements of the Every Students Succeeds Act, the Lamar County School System would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/ or paraprofessional(s). The following information may be requested:


  • Whether the student’s teacher—
    • has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
    • is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
    • is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.


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


If you wish to request information concerning the credentials of your child’s teacher, please contact the principal at the following locations or the central office:
