CVES is a Title 1 school. Title 1, under the no child left behind act (NCLB), provides financial assistance to local educational agencies to meet the needs of special educationally disadvantaged children at preschool, elementary and secondary school levels. Title 1 began with the passage of the elementary and secondary education act of 1965. The purpose of Title 1 is to help children achieve the state’s academic standards. This is accomplished through supplemental programs that consist of instructional services, instructional support services, school wide reform efforts, and increased involvement of parents in their children’s education.
CVES operates a school wide Title 1 program. The goal of a school wide program is to ensure that all students , especially those that are low achieving, demonstrate successful levels of achievement on state academic achievement standards. To Be eligible to operate a Title 1 school wide program a school must have at least 40% of students receiving free or reduced lunch.
These federal funds are used to supplement existing school programs. Some of the uses of these funds are to:
– Identify students experiencing academic difficulties and providing timely assistance to help these student’s meet the State’s challenging content standards.
– Purchase supplemental staff/programs/materials/supplies
– Conduct parental Involvement meetings/trainings/activities
