Title I Federal Funding

Union Public Schools

Title I provides federal funding to schools to assist students who are low achieving or at most risk of falling behind. Title I is allocated to schools based on the percentage of student receiving free/reduced lunch. Schools with a percentage of at least 40 percent are eligible for a schoolwide program. Parent and family involvement is critical to student success.

Union Public Schools has nine schoolwide Title 1 Programs. They are Boevers, Roy Clark, Grove, Jarman, Jefferson, Ellen Ochoa, McAuliffe, and Rosa Parks elementary schools and the 6th/7th Grade Center.

District Title I Plan  / Title I Plans by School & Parent Notifications / Federal Programs /

Schools designated as Title I use federal funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school. Title I funds are used to serve students in order to raise academic achievement as well as to provide additional assistance to all students who experience difficulties in meeting the State’s performance targets.

A Title I school must: have a free/reduced lunch count of at least 40 percent; collect and analyze data that effects student achievement;and  develop a comprehensive site plan and annually review the effectiveness of the plan. Each site must also have a Site Planning Team including parents to complete a needs assessment and prepare a summary of the data analysis to present to stakeholders. Current Proficiency Levels for state performance targets for reading and math are included.

Each designated Title I school prepares a comprehensive site plan and writes goals for the school year. Curriculum, Instructional Strategies and Assessments are aligned to these site goals.

For more information about Title programs, see Federal Level.

Title I Parent Notification Requirements

Each Title 1 site has a Parental Involvement Policy and School-Parent Compact explaining parental involvement opportunities and how to be involved in decisions at the school on various committees.

Each Site prepares a plan for informing parents about their child’s achievement on state assessments, as well as ongoing assessment information.

Each Site is required to notify parents if their child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified.

Each Site is required to notify parents of their right to request information on the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher or paraprofessionals providing services to the child.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated annually October 23-31, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Union Public Schools will host a myriad of activities during this time to raise awareness as well.

Red Ribbon Week was started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally tortured and murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico.  As a tribute to SA Camarena, high school friend, Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

Union school sites will host activities ranging from special assemblies, special dress-up days to classroom activities that address the concerns related to illicit drugs.
