arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board desires to assist all schools receiving federal Title I funds to achieve adequate yearly progress as defined by the State Board of Education.

Whenever a district school is identified as in need of program improvement, the Superintendent or designee shall coordinate improvement efforts with federal, state and local school improvement programs as appropriate and shall develop an improvement plan in accordance with law and as specified in administrative regulation.

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

The Superintendent or designee shall provide the Board with regular reports on the implementation of the school improvement plan and the effectiveness of program improvement efforts in raising student achievement.
