Complaint Process – File a Citizen’s Complaint:

OSPI has a written formal complaint process for resolving issues of violation of a Title I Federal regulation. If you have a concern with Title I services and/or regulations we encourage you to contact your child’s Title I teaching team, your school’s principal and/or the district’s Title I office (676-6542). You can also access the Citizen’s Complaint Process through the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) in Olympia.  The link below has all of the information for filing a complaint through OSPI.


State Learning Assistance Program (LAP) funds in the Bellingham Public Schools are used to provide supplemental reading and math services to qualifying students at the elementary, middle and high schools.

Elementary LAP Reading Support:

Each elementary school has a part time reading specialist who works with students to support their reading development.  The elementary LAP Reading Teachers provide supplemental instruction for striving readers.  The intervention materials used for much of this instruction is Fountas and Pinnell’s  Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) curriculum.

Questions regarding the use of LAP funds can be directed to Stephanie Korn at 360-676-6542.
