Title I Information

Basehor Elementary School 

Dear Parents:


Our school has been identified as an official Title I school. Basehor Elementary and Basehor Intermediate schools qualify for this federal program, which provides extra math and reading support for students by a formula based on the percentage of students who qualify to receive free or reduced lunch benefits in the school. Because we qualify for these special resources, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires us to meet specific criteria referred to as Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) as defined by the state of Kansas and determined by a formula that considers:

  •       The performance of third through tenth grade students on the Kansas math assessment
  •       The performance of third through tenth grade students on the Kansas reading assessment


Federal guidelines mandate that Title I schools provide parents the right to know. As a parent you have the right to know:

The qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, such as:

  •       Whether or not the teacher is certified in Kansas
  •       Whether the certification is emergency or provisionary
  •      The teacher’s college major and if he/she has advance degrees
  •      Whether aides or paraprofessionals are providing services to your child and, if so, his/her qualifications
  •      How your child performed on the Kansas reading and math assessments


K-2 grade levels at Basehor Elementary are not given state assessments. Information about our staff credentials and our test scores are public information and will be listed in our state report card. :


Thank you for your continued support of our school. Together we can make a very positive difference for your child. We are working hard to provide the best possible education for your family. Please call the school and set a time to meet with your child’s teacher or me if you have questions at any time during the school year.


Respectfully yours,

Tiffany Lynch
