Title I

Adequate Yearly Progress: Schools and Districts in Improvement
Parent/Guardian Notification — Sample Letters

At each stage of school improvement—identification, corrective action, restructuring—the school district must provide a detailed explanation of the causes and consequences of the school's performance. These communications must also offer ways that parents can become involved in the education of their children.

These sample letters of notification cover the primary components of compliance with federal law related to adequate yearly progress, public school choice and supplemental educational services. We encourage districts to use these letters as templates and customize them for the families whose children attend schools in a step of improvement.

Keep in mind that, once you edit the text, we cannot guarantee that the content will still comply with federal law.
