Federal Programs

Title 1 Regulations Parent’s Right to Know   Rollinsford Grade School, and Somersworth elementary and middle schools receive Title I funds to help students reach established academic standards.  Currently teachers within each school are qualified to teach in their assigned grade levels and subject areas.  Under the Federal law, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, we are required to notify parents of their rights. Rollinsford, Maple Wood, Idlehurst, and Somersworth Middle School parents may request information about the qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers.  In particular, a parent may seek the following information:

  • Whether the teacher meets the State qualifications for the grade level and subject area of instruction;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching outside the certification;
  • The degree held by the teacher and any other graduate certification or degrees and the field of the certification or degree; and
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so their qualification.

If you would like to request any of the above information, please call Caroline Butler, Title I Project Manager at 692-2126.  A written request may be sent to 7 Memorial Drive, Somersworth, NH 03878.  All responses will be made in a timely manner.
