Title I Program Participation by Private School Students - Section 1120(a) of the federal Title I law provides that public schools ensure that the parents of private school students who reside within a public school district’s boundaries and the private schools that serve those children are aware that those students are eligible to receive Title I services from the resident public school. This is true even if the private school is located within another public school district. If your child or a student you know attends kindergarten through grade four at a state approved private school in Chelan County and also resides within the boundaries of the Cashmere School District, he or she is eligible to receive Title I services from the Cashmere School District.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."
- Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
- Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
Pesticides - Throughout the school year the maintenance department works hard to maintain our school facilities in top condition. In order to accomplish this task they invest a great deal of time working on sports/ play fields and controlling pests is a vital part of our over all strategy for providing quality facilities. In the process of controlling unwanted pests on school grounds they find it necessary to apply pesticides. Currently they use a tractor mounted sprayer to apply a product called “Buccaneer” on all district fence lines, along curbing and sidewalks, etc., to control unwanted vegetation, (i.e. weeds). Application of this pesticide is done at a time and in a manner that minimizes exposure to staff and students. When application is necessary they will post the area to be treated 48 hours in advance as well as post notices in the office areas of the associated school buildings as required by Washington state law. These notices will state product name, location of application, date and time of application, and a contact person with phone number should you want further clarification or information. The maintenance department will continue to work diligently to maintain school grounds in a professional manner that reflects positively on the community as a whole. They will only apply pesticides when it is absolutely necessary and will follow all guidelines required by state law. If you have any questions you can contact Ken Scammahorn through the school district office at 782-3355.
