What is Title I?
  • is to ensure that all children have a fair,
    equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a
    high-quality education and reach, at a minimum,
    proficiency on challenging state academic
    achievement standards and state academic
    assessments No Child Left Behind (NCLB) 2001
  • Title I, Part A federal funds are supplemental
    monies to help meet the educational needs of
    low-achieving students in the highest-poverty
    schools.
  • In order to access Title I funds, LAUSD schools
    must have a poverty threshold of at least 50
    based on free- and reduced price meal
    applications and/or CalWORKS.
  • Schools that rank into Title I deliver
    supplemental services through a targeted
    assistance (TAS) program or a schoolwide program
    (SWP) model.

Who Receives Title I Services?
  • Although schools are eligible for Title I
    funding based on poverty, the selection process
    for providing Title I services to students is not
    based on low-income. It is based entirely on
    academic achievement.

What are Supplemental Funds?

    schools.

Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
  • California Education Code 64001 requires that
    districts receiving state, federal and other
    applicable funding through the Consolidated
    Application (ConApp) process ensure that
    participating schools write a SPSA.
  • California Education Code 52852 requires these
    schools to establish a School Site Council (SSC)
    as the decision-making council for all programs
    funded through the ConApp.
  • The School Site Council (SSC) is responsible for
    developing, reviewing, and approving the SPSA
    with written advice from appropriate school
    advisory committees.
  • Expenses described in the SPSA must be aligned to
    data that will address specific needs and must be
    annually evaluated.

Parents Right to Know
  • The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)
    mandates that Title I, Part A funded schools give
    parents timely notice when their child has been
    assigned, or has been taught for four or more
    consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly
    qualified. The school sends letters home to
    parents to inform them about this assignment when
    applicable.
  • NCLB requires Title I, Part A schools to notify
    parents at the beginning of each school year that
    they may request information about the
    qualifications of their childrens teachers and
    paraprofessionals who provide educational
    assistance to their children.
  • LAUSD parents may make written requests to the
    school and receive information regarding the
    qualifications of their childs teacher (i.e.,
    credential, degree, and major) and
    paraprofessionals.

CORE WAIVER
  • On August 6, 2013, eight California school
    districts, including LAUSD, received a waiver
    from some of the mandates of the No Child Left
    Behind Act from the U.S. Secretary of Education.
  • The eight school districts are grouped together
    in an association called the California Office of
    School Reform (CORE) Fresno Unified SD, Long
    Beach USD, LAUSD, Oakland USD, Sacramento USD,
    San Francisco USD, Sanger USD, and Santa Ana USD.

SCHOOL QUALITY IMPROVEMENT SYSTEM
  • With this waiver, CORE does not seek to escape
    FROM accountability. Instead, CORE is asking for
    a waiver INTO a new system with higher level of
    shared responsibility and accountability.
  • The new accountability system will be called the
    School Quality Improvement System.
  • The School Quality Improvement System is designed
    to hold schools accountable for the performance
    of all students across a variety of factors.
    Factors include
  • - Academic performance
  • - Social-Emotional
  • - Culture and Climate
