Title I is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Chatsworth Charter High School has been authorized by the California Department of Education to operate a Title I Schoolwide Program. As a result, the school receives additional funding from the state and federal governments that enable us to upgrade the entire educational program in order to help all students meet the challenging state standards. A comprehensive needs assessment and an analysis of the student achievement data are conducted every year to develop a School Plan for Student Achievement. This is completed through the collaborative efforts of our school’s staff, students and parents. The schoolwide program includes strategies to raise the academic achievement of all students.
The products and services available from the school’s Title I resources to assist your student include the following:
At the beginning of the year the school holds a Title I meeting to inform parents about our school’s participation in the Title I program, explain the requirements of Title I and the rights of parents to be involved.
