Title I Certification Notification to Parents
Title IA does still require parents to be notified if their child is being taught by a teacher that isn't appropriately state certified.
LEA level – Appropriately State Certified
The Local Education Agency (LEA) will ensure that all teachers working in a program supported with Title I funds meet applicable State certification and licensure requirements.
School level – Appropriately State Certified
- Teachers working in a Title I program are appropriately state certified.
The Local Education Agency (LEA) and the Title I School has professional standards for paraprofessionals working in a program supported with Title I.

- Parents (in Title I schools only) are notified if their child is assigned to or being taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not appropriately state certified. (This cannot be marked N/A.)
