Parents Right To Know

Thomas E. Kerns Elementary is proud to be a Title I school.  We are a recipient of Title I federal funds.  All parents are invited to participate in the plan’s yearly development, may offer program recommendations, and may review the completed plan via our notebook in the front office or our school website.  Parents have the right to request information about qualifications of their child's teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s). This information is also listed on each teacher's individual website.
