                                      State Compensatory Education
This District has written policies and procedures to identify the following:
    Students who are at risk of dropping out of school under state criteria
    Students who are at risk of dropping out of school under local criteria
    How students are entered into the SCE program
    How students are exited from the SCE program
    The cost of the regular education program in relation to budget allocations per student and/or instructional staff per
      student ratio

Total SCE funds allotted to this Campus    $401,930.00
Total FTEs funded through SCE at this Campus 12 FTE’s

The process we use to identify students at risk is:
Student’s placement as “AT-Risk” to be served with SCE funds is based on criteria deemed suitable for student’s
risk of failure in the educational environment. This criteria is organized by the campus principal, counselor and
district PEIMS coordinator.

The process we use to exit students from the SCE program who no longer qualify is:
Students who are no longer meeting the criteria deemed “At-Risk” may be removed by the campus principal,
counselor and the district PEIMS
coordinator at the end of each six-week period.

The comprehensive, intensive, accelerated instruction program at this district/campus consists of after school tutorials for students at-risk, two
additional math teachers to reduce the student teacher ratio in math, and the purchase and implementation of the Capturing Kids Hearts program to
reduce the risk for student dropping out of school.

Upon evaluation of the effectiveness of this program the committee finds that the effectiveness of the programs deems that all programs should be
continued.
