What does this mean?
Calavera Hills Middle School has been designated a Title I School. Title I is a federally funded program created to support the needs of at-risk students, those students who fall in the Below Basic or Far Below Basic range on the previous year's California Standardized Tests (CSTs) in Language Arts and/or Mathematics. Schools receive Title I funding based on the percentage of their student enrollment that qualifies as being low-income. Low-income students are the students that are on free or reduced lunch. Students are identified as Title I if they fall into either or both of those categories. Children who qualify have access to some or all of the following support services: push-in support tutoring for Language Arts and/or Mathematics four times per week, before and after school homework assistance, instructional support materials and curriculum in Language Arts and Math, professional development through teacher training and implementation in classroom instruction, and the parent involvement required by Title I.
