Letter from the Principal

August 21, 2023

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Our school, Harrison Central High School, is a Title I school. This means we receive federal monies to supplement our local and state funding. Title I funding allows us to employ academic coaches to assist in educating our students. In addition, we are also able to purchase additional professional development for our teachers, purchase additional supplies and purchase additional equipment to increase student achievement in reading, math and science. This fund also requires us to engage parents in their student’s academic life by eliciting feedback on the Title I School Plan, School Compact and Family Engagement Policy and provide frequent parent meetings (virtually or in person). In addition, 1% of the school’s Title I budget must be spent on Family Engagement. Every year in the Comprehensive Needs Assessment survey, sent annually in the month of February, parents are asked their preference in how these funds should be spent at the school level.  Also, due to participating in Title I, each parent should be familiar with the “Parent’s Right to Know.” This explains that, as a parent, you have a right to know the credentials of any teacher or teacher’s assistant that provides instruction for your child and if a teacher is not state certified in the subject in which they instruct your child.  If you have questions or concerns about your child’s teacher, please call the principal. 

In addition to Title I our campus also benefits from Title II (professional development for teachers and staff), Title III (English Learners), Title IV (well rounded, safe/healthy, use of technology), McKinney-Vento (homeless assistance act), Gifted and IDEA (special needs). We also operate in conjunction with USDA (cafeteria services), Head Starts, and other programs funded by the federal, state, and local governments. These grants are administered by various people and are coordinated through the district office.

Our school honors each child’s right to privacy by adhering to FERPA, PPRA and COPPA. For this reason, we will not disclose any personally identifiable information (PII) about any student without the written consent of the parent or guardian in accordance with federal legislation. Furthermore, we provide the strictest measures possible to ensure online safety for students when using district owned devices and do not solicit personal information about students unless necessary. We ensure that all data collected from students is disposed of properly, keeping information confidential. (For more information about federal legislation, please see the back of this note.)

Our goal at Harrison Central High School is to provide all students with a quality education. Working together, we will achieve our goal.
