Title I

The Pinnacle Charter School is partially funded with Federal Title grants. This funding provides opportunities for educational programming that benefits all Pinnacle students.

As a parent of a student at The Pinnacle Charter School, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts and schools that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher. The law also requires us to give you this information in a timely manner upon request. You have the right to ask for the following information about your student’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has licensed or endorsed your student’s teacher for the grades and subjects taught.
  • Whether CDE has decided that your student’s teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.
  • The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees.
  • Whether any teachers’ aides or similar para-educators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

Highly Qualified Teachers
The Pinnacle Charter School receives Title I federal funding under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The law states that any school that receives funds for educationally disadvantaged students (Title I funds) must inform parents if their child is assigned a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks who is not considered “highly qualified” under No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
According to the ESEA law, a “highly qualified” teacher is one who:

  • Has obtained a Bachelor’s degree or higher;
  • Has obtained full State certification – in Colorado this means that the teacher has a valid, Colorado teaching license; and
  • Has demonstrated competency in the core academic subject area(s) that he/she teaches.

The core academic subjects are English; Reading or Language Arts; Mathematics; Science; Foreign Languages; Social Studies (Civics, Government, Economics, History, Geography); and The Arts (Visual Arts, Drama, Music). The Pinnacle strives to always place teachers designated as highly qualified into classrooms. However, should this not be possible, parents will be informed in writing.
