Anthony - Leng Vue Program ConAppPart II for 2009-10 – How was the money spent? Wanda Shironaka distributed a handout showing the allocations for the school year. She clarified the following points: Title I is for schools with 36% or more students receiving free or reduced lunch EIA is for schools with 25% - 35% of students receive free or reduced lunch Only 3 schools in our district receive no Title I or EIA funds. The Superintendent and School Board, with input from DAC, decide how the allocation percentages are set. Title I requires allocation to schools with 75% or more students receiving free or reduced lunch. The district makes all other decisions. DAC Minutes January 12, 2009 DAC reviews the ConApp signature page, which must be complete by 1/29/10. ConApp Part I, the application for funds was due last June. Part II, which shows how the funds were allocated is due by the end of January. Wanda Yanez questioned why there was such a large carryover. Wanda Shironaka will deliver the final report at the February DAC meeting. Creating a Winning Parent Involvement Policy and School Compact Carol Dickson, from the California Department of Education, presented an overview of Title I. The U.S. Congress is responsible for allocating Title I funds. Research has shown that if parents are involved, academic achievement goes up. Therefore the government requires input from parents and requires a program to reach out and involve parents be present at both the district and school levels. Every district must meet 6 requirements and each school must meet 4 related to involving parents and raising academic achievement. The CDE monitors 1,450 districts in the state for compliance. It reviews 25% of districts each year, and checks a representative sample of school sites with each audit. The federal government then monitors the state CDE. Each district must have a written plan for each of the 6 requirements and must show how the requirements will be met. Each school must have a parental involvement policy and a Compact, samples of which were distributed. The law outlines compliant uses of Title I funds, including what must be covered and what may be covered. Project Inspire, www.bilingualeducation.org provides 12 modules of training. www.calpirc.org provides an electronic survey.
