Title I School
Creekside is a school-wide Title I school. Per Washington's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, a school-wide program takes the form of a comprehensive reform strategy designed to improve all educational programming in a school. The primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, meet and exceed the learning goals defined by state academic standards.
Schools that receive Title I, Part A funds and use the school-wide model must complete these 4 reform strategies:
- Conduct a comprehensive needs assessment.
- Identify goals and strategies that address those needs.
- Commit to putting the strategies into action and meeting related goals.
- Create a comprehensive plan.
- Conduct an annual review that evaluates the effectiveness of the school-wide program.
- Revise the plan as necessary.
Annual Title I Meeting
Please join us for our annual Title I Meeting. This will take place annually at Creekside's October PTSO meeting and at our Fall Open House. PTSO meetings take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 6 - 7 pm in the school library. Open House dates will from year to year; watch our website and communication from school about this date. At these meetings we will provide you with information about curriculum, academic assessments, and measuring student progress. We will also provide opportunities for your input into program services. Finally, we will give you an opportunity to provide input into Creekside's Parent and Family Engagement Policy. Until that has been drafted, please click here for Mead's School Board Policy around Title I Parent and Family Engagement.
School Report Card
Our report card will be located here after our first completion of the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) in grades 3 - 5.
Parents' Right to Request Teacher and Para Qualifications
Districts and schools must inform the parents of Title I, Part A students that they may request, and the district and schools will provide, certain information on the professional qualifications of their students' classroom teachers and paraprofessionals providing services to their children. Should you desire such information, do not hesitate to contact Laura Duchow, Creekside principal, or anyone in our main office.
Citizens Complaint Process
When a District receives Federal Title I funds, it allows us the opportunity to provide supplemental support programs for Title I-eligible students. As a recipient of these funds, we are required to inform you that if you have a complaint about the services offered under Title I and have not been able to resolve them locally, you may file a citizen complaint to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
A citizen’s complaint is a written statement that alleges a violation of a federal rule, law, or state regulation that applies to a federal program.
- Anyone can file a citizen’s complaint
- There is no special form
- There is no need to know the law that governs a federal program to file a complaint
For additional information, please contact our main office for a hard copy of the complaint procedure or you may access information online by clicking here.
