Title 1 & Program Improvement

Title I and Program Improvement

Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA) provides funding to districts and schools with high numbers of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Funds are used to provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-income students achieve academic success.

Program Improvement
Under ESEA Title I schools and school districts that did not make their Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) were identified for Program Improvement (PI). Title I schools and districts that failed to make AYP toward statewide proficiency goals are subject to improvement and corrective action measures. In California, PI is the formal designation for Title I funded schools and districts that fail to make AYP for two consecutive years. In order to exit PI status, the AYP targets must be met for two consecutive years.

PI Status Determinations

Information on PI status determinations (identification, advancement, and exit criteria) at both the school and district level can be found at Title I PI Status Determinations. See also Accountability Progress Reporting which provides links to PI Reports by school and district.

Important Changes in PI Status Determinations
On March 7, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education approved California’s testing waiver for certain statutory and regulatory requirements of Title I, Part A of the ESEA of 1965, as amended. Specifically, a waiver was granted that allowed flexibility in AYP determinations for schools and districts participating in the Smarter Balanced assessment field test. Therefore, the California Department of Education (CDE) did not produce a 2014 or 2015 AYP report for school districts

In 2016, the determinations changed to assessment participation and attendance only for K-8 districts. Oak Grove met the targets and will exit PI status if the targets are met for one more year. Our schools and district continue to implement PI requirements associated with their current PI status. As a PI district, we will continue to:
  • Provide a rigorous, common core curriculum with instructional strategies that model high expectations
  • Implement the revised Local Education Agency (LEA) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
  • Reserve at least 10% of our annual Title I allocation to provide professional development for teachers and administrators
  • Provide assistance to schools identified PI as well as non-PI Title I schools to increase student achievement.

District Schools in Program Improvement

Schools designated as Program Improvement must take specific corrective actions to increase student achievement. The specific actions are stated in the following school PI notification letters. In addition, schools must offer School Choice (available schools provided in the school notification letter) and may provide Supplemental Educational Services (SES) to support students through additional tutoring.

School of Choice

ESEA requires that all students enrolled in a PI school must be given the opportunity to transfer to another public school that is not in PI. When a student is placed in a new public school he/she may remain through its highest grade. Additional information regarding School Choice is available in the school office or by contacting the school principal.

The following chart reflects the schools that made be selected for Public School Choice for the 2015-2016 school year.

Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
Schools in PI for more than one year must offer additional reading and mathematics support for eligible students outside the regular day. Organizations/agencies that have been approved by the California State Board of Education and are interested in working with the Oak Grove School District are SES providers. These providers offer tutoring programs paid by the federal government to help improve students’ academic performance. These funds are limited and if the requests for tutoring exceed the available funding, priority will be given to the lowest-performing and low-income students.
