What Is Title I?
Constitution is a Title 1 School with a Schoolwide Program!
Schools qualify for Title I Services based on the percentage of enrolled students in economic need. In DVUSD, this is determined by the number of students in the free and reduced-price lunch program. All schools with a free and reduced-price lunch of 40% or more are serviced through federal Title I funding. Once Title I is part of a school, any student enrolled who needs extra academic help is eligible for assistance, regardless of family income.
There are two main models for serving students in a Title I school: Targeted Assistance Program and school wide Program. Constitution is a school wide Program which funds a comprehensive plan to upgrade instruction in high poverty schools without distinguishing between “eligible” or “ineligible” children.
School wide programs have the following key components:
School wide Reform Strategies: Addressing the needs of all children in our school
Instruction by Highly Qualified Teachers: Ensuring instruction and provide on-going professional development
Parental Involvement: Creating ways to involve parents in planning, review, and improvement of our school
Additional Support: Providing effective, timely assistance to students experiencing difficulty.
Transition Plans: Assisting students moving from home to Kindergarten and students in 6thgrade to middle school.
Our Campus Improvement Plan (CIP), along with the Title I school wide Plan, drives all of our programs, strategies, monetary expenditures, and parent/community involvement efforts. Please contact the school if you have questions about our Title I program.
