The Academic English Learner/Student Support department is responsible for compliance with the requirements of two federal grant programs: Title I and Title III.

Title I 

Title I is a federal program that provides supplemental funds to ensure that children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. The intent of Title I funding is to meet the educational needs of low-achieving students enrolled in the highest poverty schools and to close the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children. Title I funding is based on the percentage of students who qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

In Riverside Unified School District, Title I is a Kindergarten through 12th grade program, and funds for this program are based on a per pupil amount for each student who qualifies for the NSLP enrolled at the school:
  • Elementary and middle schools with a NSLP percentage of 60% and higher are eligible for Title I
  • High schools with a NSLP percentage of 75% and higher are eligible for Title I.

Title I Schools: Adams Elementary, Alcott Elementary, Patricia Beatty Elementary, Bryant Elementary, Central Middle School, Chemawa Middle School, Emerson Elementary, Fremont Elementary, Gage Middle School, Harrison Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary , Highgrove Elementary, Highland Elementary, Hyatt Elementary, Jackson Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, Liberty Elementary, Lincoln High School, Longfellow Elementary, Madison Elementary, Magnolia Elementary, Monroe Elementary, Mountain View Elementary, Pachappa Elementary, Ramona High School, Sierra Middle School, Taft Elementary , University Heights Middle School, Victoria Elementary, Washington Elementary. 

Title III
The purpose of this program is to provide funds for helping limited English proficient (LEP) children attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging state academic standards as all children are expected to meet. Funds must be used for increasing the English proficiency of LEP children by providing high-quality language instruction and high-quality professional development for their teachers and other school staff. All sites are eligible for Title III services from the district office.
These programs have many important components, such as parent involvement and parent education, opportunities for school choice, as well as services for our Academic English Learners.
