Parents-Title Programs

Albuquerque Bilingual Academy Center Title I Part A

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress late last year and signed into law on December 10, 2015. The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Although NCLB was designed to make changes in teaching and learning in order to increase students’ academic achievement, the Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) provision under NCLB was eliminated from the ESSA. Despite this fact, all educators in New Mexico still are required to hold the appropriate state certificate/license for their given position.

Under the ESSA, all schools receiving Title I funds must inform parents of several important aspects of our program. The notifications are included below. Please remember that you, as an ABA parent/guardian, may request additional information from the school at any time. You may also request copies of notifications that have been lost of misplaced.

Thank you, 

Chris Jones, ABA Executive Director
