The district, within its financial capacity, will offer programs that are designed to meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged students. Eligible students may receive services from one of three special needs programs — special education, learning assistance (LAP) and Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
The district or individual school will conduct a needs assessment to develop a plan for the use of Title I funds to support eligible students. Special education, LAP, and Title I plans will be developed in consultation with an advisory committee, including, but not limited to, parents of participants, teachers, principals, administrators, and school directors. Such plans will comply with the federal guidelines denoted in the procedures connected to this policy.
The superintendent is directed to identify eligible students and their special needs and design programs that will satisfy those needs by making use of, when advantageous, federal remediation assistance, learning assistance (LAP) and special education services. The superintendent will monitor the progress of such programs; and provide assurances to state and federal agencies that such programs are in compliance with program requirements regarding staff qualifications, staff-student ratios, student records, facilities and materials, financial accounting, reporting, and program and student evaluation.
In compliance with the federal law, the board of directors has adopted parent involvement policies, developed jointly with agreed upon by, and distributed to the parents of children participating in Title I.
