Title 1


    Deer Valley Unified School District has thirteen Title I schools. These schools are identified to receive Title I funding based on free and reduced lunch percentages. Schools that have 40% or more of their students receiving free or reduced lunch receive Title I funding. 

    Being a Title I school means receiving federal funding (Title I dollars) to supplement the school’s existing programs. These dollars are used for: 

    –      Identifying students experiencing academic difficulties and providing timely assistance to help these students meet the State’s challenging content standards.

    –      Purchasing supplemental staff/programs/materials/supplies

    –      Conducting parental involvement meetings/trainings/activities

    –      Recruiting/Hiring/Retaining Highly Qualified Teachers

     Deer Valley has 13 schools with Schoolwide Programs.  A schoolwide program means that the Title program serves all children in the school.  All staff, resources, and classes are part of the overall school wide program. The purpose is to generate high levels of academic achievement in core subject areas for all students, especially those students most in need.

     A target school program serves students who are identified as most at risk for not meeting the state academic standards.  The program targets resources only to those students most at risk academically.  Professional development is provided to those working with the identified group.

     Deer Valley schools set aside 1% of the Title I  budget for parental involvement. All Title I schools emphasize bringing in parents as academic partners and each school receives funding to further this partnership. To learn more about your school’s Title I program and specific parent involvement opportunities, please click on the school links below.
