Title One

Title I is for EVERYONE!

We invite all parents and community members to be involved with Title I. If you would like to help review and write grants or be involved in the planning of Title I or Title IIA, please contact your Local Educational Agency (LEA) Mrs. Wanda Bell at wanda.bell@isd116.org or your Title I teacher Mr. Larry Embertson at lembertson@isd116.org.


Parents Right to Know

Parents may request, and Pillager School will provide the parents on request, information regarding the qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers, including:

*Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.

*Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which the State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

*The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and the fields of discipline of the certification or degree.

*Whether the child is provided service by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications. All Pillager School Paraprofessionals are employed through The Work Connection in Brainerd, MN and either have a two year A.A. degree or have passed the Para Pro Test.


We LOVE our Volunteers!
We encourage parents to be involved in their child's education here at Pillager Elementary School. All students in Pillager Elementary are able to receive services under the School Wide Title I Plan. We use data from our testing to determine strengths and needs of our students. We update our website regularly to keep parents informed. Pillager Elementary works with Early Childhood programs as well as others to include parents in our school programs. Test data is available on each student. We would gladly explain or answer any questions that you have.


We want all parents to be aware of the many opportunities to be in school committees. This includes a Title I committee. The Title I committee will annually review the "Ten Elements" of school wide planning as they work on the Title I plan. The newsletter and website will enable parents to see additional information in the event the school has been identified as a needs improvement school.


The district wide Parental Involvement Policy procedures has been developed jointly with and agreed on with, parents of children participating in Title I programs. The school will distribute this policy to all parents participating Title I, Part A children on or before September 19 of the present school year.

If you have any questions concerning Title I, please feel free to see the LEA for Title I, Mrs. Bell at 746-2110. You could also access the State Report Card on Pillager School at this link.
