Local, State, and Federal Programs
In the Jurupa Unified School District, the following programs are a part of the Consolidated Application and have specific purposes.
|The purpose of Title I is to provide supplemental funds to school sites (grades Pre-K through 12) to be used to narrow the educational gap between disadvantaged children and other children in those areas where the highest concentration of children from low-income families attend school. The goal is to ensure all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach minimum profieciency. Title I funds are allocated to schools based on the percent of their low-income population.
The purpose of Title II is to provide supplemental activities that strengthen the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders which includes:
- Increase student achievement consistent with the challenging state academic standards;
- Improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders;
- Increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools; and
- Provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders.
Title II funds can be used to improve teacher and principal quality which include induction programs, professional development and support professional growth, equitable access to quality educators and recruitment for hard-to-find educator positions. These funds supplement district funds for professional development for teachers, principals, and other school leaders.
|The purpose of Title III is to help ensure that English Learner (EL) students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English Language Proficiency (ELP) and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet. Federal funding is provided through grant programs to assist the district in providing services to English learner students. Funds may also be used for a variety of instructional support, curricular development, parental involvement, and related Limited English Proficient (LEP) student program activities.
|The purpose of Title IV is to improve the academic achievement of all students by increasing the capacity of local education agencies (LEAs), schools, and communities to:
- Provide all students with access to a well-rounded education;
- Improve school conditions for student learning; and
- Improve the use of technology to improve the academic achievement and digitial literacy of all students.
