About Our Title I School

Rock Hall Elementary School

Kent County Public Schools is committed to ensuring equity and giving every child an opportunity to succeed. Essential to this mission is hiring and retaining highly effective teachers and support staff who are invested in providing safe and secure classroom environments where every child is encouraged to thrive.
 
The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) contains several provisions that promote a family/school partnership through communication. One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers.
 
A parent may request the following information:
• Any college or university degree, major or certificate held by the teacher
• Whether the teacher is certified by the State of Maryland to teach a particular grade level or subject area
• Whether the teacher holds a conditional teaching certificate
• The qualifications of the paraprofessionals serving the student.
 
If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals, please submit a written request to the principal. The principal will provide information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.
 
We hope your child has a positive start to the 2023-2024 school year, and highly encourage your continued involvement in your child’s education. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.




Title I Information

School Improvement Plan
School Improvement Plans (SIP) are developed at each of Kent County Public Schools' Schoolwide Title I schools. Input at each of these schools is gathered from stakeholders including educators, parents and community members, all of whom are members of each school’s Improvement Team. New members are welcome to attend monthly meetings and become a part of their school’s team.
 
Improvement Plans are reviewed and updated annually and are amended as needs arise and new data on student achievement becomes available during the year. Each plan includes four components including one that calls for improving academic achievement for all students through maintaining a strong commitment to involving and engaging parents and the greater school community. Families can request a copy of the RHES SIP from the school office or click here to download a copy.
 
School-Family Compact
A School-Family Compact is an agreement that parents, students and teachers agree on together. It explains how parents and teachers work jointly to make sure all students get the individual support they need in order to meet and exceed grade level standards. Review the responsibilities, sign and then return to school with your child to be kept on file for future use.
