  1. The Title I Program

    1. Title I is a K-12 program that provides additional academic support and learning opportunities for students at schools with high percentages of socio-economically disadvantaged children.  The program is intended to help ensure that all students meet challenging state academic standards.  The goals of Title I are to provide direct instructional support to students and professional development for teachers, in addition to promoting parent education and involvement.

 

  1. Parent Rights Under Title I

Under Title I law, parents have the right to: 

    • Ask for their own meetings and trainings; 

    • Review the results of an annual parent involvement survey; 

    • Review the school’s achievement data to determine if Title I services are effective in meeting the goals for student proficiency in state standards; 

    • Review the parent involvement plan in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA); 

    • Review and modify the site Title I Parent Involvement Policy and Home/School Compact.

 

  1. Parent Involvement at Our School

    1. The School Site Council (SSC) provides parents with the opportunity to be involved in the academic program of the school.  The SSC develops, monitors, and evaluates the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) to implement programs and services that support students. 

    2. Cobalt Institute of Math and Science & the School Site Council has a Family Engagement Center for all parents.  Additionally, a Family Engagement Liaison manages the Family Engagement Center and serves as a direct liaison to all CIMS families/parents.  This is the 5th consecutive year that the Family Engagement Center has been in existence.  

 

  1. School Achievement Data

    1. Schools analyze the scores and results of the previously-administered California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) tests and the scores and results of the English Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC), and review schoolwide performance data, suspension/expulsion data, attendance data, and graduation rates.  They use the data to align the curriculum to state and district academic, achievement, and behavioral standards.  Schools adjust instructional practices based on the findings of the assessment data.





 

  1. Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

    1. Parents should receive information about the school’s curriculum, specifically the English/Language Arts and math programs, and the assessments used to measure student progress in those programs.

 

SCHOOL GOAL #1: Increase Student Achievement-Math

SCHOOL GOAL #2: Increase Student Achievement-English

SCHOOL GOAL #3: Increase School Conditions and Climate

SCHOOL GOAL #4:  Increase Academic Engagement

SCHOOL GOAL #5:  Mitigating Learning Loss-SB 98

 

  1. Title I Expenditures

    1. Schools are allocated Title I funds based upon the percentage of students receiving free or reduced lunch.  All schools in the Victor Valley Union High School District receive Title I funds. Title I funds must supplement, not supplant, district funding.  One percent of the total site amount is specifically allocated for parent involvement.  Schools must also allocate a portion of their Title I funds for professional development tied to all of the aforementioned SPSA Goals.

 

  1. Title I Parent Involvement Policy

    1. The Title I Parent Involvement Policy communicates how the school will involve parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely way in the planning, review, and improvement of the Title I program at the school.

  2. Title I Home/School Compact

    1. The Title I Home/School Compact describes the responsibilities of the school, the parent, and the student for improved student achievement.
