Parent Right to Know

  • Abrams, Aragon, Mesa, Mountainside, Patriot, and Weikel are Title I schools.  Under the provisions for Title I all teachers serving students must meet the qualifications for "Highly Qualified" as an elementary educator.  We are proud to inform you that all teachers at all Title I schools in FFC8 meet these rigorous standards.  As a parent you have a right to inquire about the qualifications of your child's teacher or paraprofessional.  In order to do so you should contact Mrs. Melissa Patterson at (719) 382-1300.  He will be able to provide you with this information.  If you have any additional questions about our Title I status or programming, please feel free to contact your school's principal directly.
