Title I Program Improvement Schools   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees is committed to enabling all district students to meet state academic achievement standards and to narrowing the achievement gap among student groups. To that end, the district shall provide support and assistance to increase student achievement in any school that receives federal Title I funding and has been identified by the California Department of Education as a program improvement (PI) school.

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6162.5 - Student Assessment)

(cf. 6162.51 - State Academic Achievement Tests)

(cf. 6171 - Title I Programs)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that school improvement strategies developed for any PI school are coordinated, aligned, and effectively implemented in accordance with administrative regulation and the Board-approved school improvement plan.

(cf. 0420 - School Plans/Site Councils)

(cf. 0460 - Local Control and Accountability Plan)

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

(cf. 6179 - Supplemental Instruction)

As necessary, the Board shall determine corrective actions for schools in Year 3 of PI and/or restructuring options for schools in Year 4 of PI or beyond.

Whenever a school is identified for Year 4 PI but is not identified as a "persistently lowest achieving school" pursuant to Education Code 53201, the parents/guardians of students attending that school may petition the Board to implement an intervention for the purpose of improving academic achievement or student safety, provided that the state limit on the number of such schools has not yet been reached. To be considered by the Board, the petition shall contain all required content and signatures and specify one of four intervention models (i.e., turnaround model, restart model, school closure, or transformation model) or an alternative governance arrangement, as described in 5 CCR 4803-4807. The district shall implement the option requested by the parents/guardians unless, at a regularly scheduled public hearing, the Board makes a finding in writing stating the reason it cannot implement the recommended option and instead designates one of the other options to be implemented. (Education Code 53300-53303; 5 CCR 4800-4808)

Program Evaluation

The Superintendent or designee shall develop an annual report card that includes the information specified in 20 USC 6311 for each district school and for the district as a whole. The required information may be incorporated into each school's school accountability report card. (20 USC 6311)

(cf. 0510 - School Accountability Report Card)

(cf. 6190 - Evaluation of the Instructional Program)

The report card shall be concise, presented in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, in a language that parents/guardians can understand. It shall be made accessible to the public on the district's web site. (20 USC 6311)

(cf. 1113 - District and School Web Sites)

As necessary based on the results of this evaluation, the Board may require the Superintendent or designee to review and revise any of the school's reform plans, including the school's Single Plan for Student Achievement, allocate additional resources toward the implementation of the plan, and/or require more frequent monitoring of the school's progress in order to raise student achievement.
