Title I Program Improvement Schools   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education 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 Board shall assist all district schools, including those receiving federal Title I funds, to achieve adequate yearly progress, as defined by the State Board of Education.

(cf. 4112.24 - Teacher Qualifications Under the No Child Left Behind Act)

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6162.5 - Student Assessment)

(cf. 6162.51 - Standardized Testing and Reporting Program)

(cf. 6171 - Title I Programs)

Whenever a district school is identified by the California Department of Education as in need of program improvement (PI), the Superintendent or designee shall ensure that school improvement efforts are coordinated and aligned. He/she shall also revise the school's Single Plan for Student Achievement in accordance with law and as specified in administrative regulation.

(cf. 0420 - School Plans/Site Councils)

(cf. 0420.1 - School-Based Program Coordination)

(cf. 0520.1 - High Priority Schools Grant Program)

(cf. 0520.4 - Quality Education Investment Schools)

Depending on the length of time a district school has been identified for PI, the district shall provide opportunities for student transfers, supplemental educational services, other corrective actions, and/or restructuring in accordance with law.

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

(cf. 6179 - Supplemental Instruction)

Program Evaluation

The Board shall annually review the adequate yearly progress of each district school based on state academic assessments and other indicators specified in the state plan for the No Child Left Behind Act. The Superintendent or designee shall publicize and disseminate the results of this review to parents/guardians, principals, schools, and the community so that the instructional program can be continually refined to help all students meet state academic standards. (20 USC 6316)

(cf. 0510 - School Accountability Report Card)

(cf. 6190 - Evaluation of the Instructional Program)

The Board and Superintendent or designee also shall review the effectiveness of the actions and activities carried out by PI schools with respect to parental involvement, professional development, and other PI activities. (20 USC 6316)

(cf. 4131 - Staff Development)

(cf. 6020 - Parent Involvement)

As necessary based on the results of these evaluations, 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.
