Thomas Starr King has been authorized by the California Department of Education to operate a Title I Schoolwide Program.  As a result, the school receives resources 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 were conducted to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement.  This was completed through the collaborative efforts of staff and parents.  The schoolwide program includes strategies to raise the academic achievement of all students.

The following services are available from the school’s Title I site-based resources to assist your child (examples are listed below):

·        Paraprofessionals provide assistance in various ESL classrooms

·        Instructional Materials and Supplies

·        Additional support staff (Nurse, PSA Counselor, Psychologist, Instructional Coach.)

·        Bridge Coordinator as additional support for the Special Education Program

·        Computers and software for students’ use before and after school 

·      An Intervention/Tutoring Program that focuses on helping students in Mathematics and English Language Arts

·      Connect Ed a parent communication system to keep parents informed about school activities and their child’s academic achievement

·      Parent Resource Liaisons and parenting classes to help parents become equal partners with our teachers in improving academic achievement

·      Math and Literacy Festivals that support the State Standards

·      Benefits from Teachers’ Staff Development Programs and Conference Attendance
