Title I Disclosures to Parents

Utah International Charter School is a Title I Targeted Assistance school in 2014-15.  This means we receive some federal funds to provide services to students with the greatest academic needs.  We spend these funds for supplementary reading instruction, math instruction, English language instruction, college counseling, and summer school.

Title I requires us to tell parents which teachers are and are not considered “highly qualified” for their assignments.  Highly qualified means that the teacher’s Utah educator license and subject endorsements exactly matches his or her courses.  All Utah International teachers have a bachelors or masters degree and either have or are obtaining a Utah secondary educator’s license.

Katie Beerman (special education, reading specialist) has a level I special education license and is considered highly qualified for her assignments.
