Thomas Starr King Middle School has been authorized by the California Department of Education to operate a School-wide Title I Program. As a result of being school-wide, King receives resources from the state and federal governments that enables us to upgrade the entire educational program in order to help all students meet the challenging state standards. To operate under a school-wide program means that all students are eligible to receive services from Title I. As we continue to provide intervention and additional services for students who are identified as “at risk” of failing, we also are taking care of the educational needs of all King youngsters.
A comprehensive needs assessment and the analysis of the school’s program were conducted and a comprehensive school plan was developed through the collaborative efforts of staff and parents.  Our School-wide Title I Program has been designed to raise the academic achievement of all students.

Assessment results indicate a need to focus on Content Literacy and Numeracy for school-wide improvement.  To address these needs King provides:
  • An Intervention/Tutoring Program that focus on helping students in Mathematics and English Language Arts
  • Supplemental materials that complement student learning
  • Parenting classes that help parents become equal partners with our teachers in improving academic achievement
  • Computer software programs to enhance all subjects
  • Computer experiences before and after school
  • CMC Mathematics Festival that supports the State Standards
  • Benefits from Teachers’ Staff Development Programs
  • Coordinator Assistance  
  • Staff members that help support your child’s education
Parents are an important component of our learning community as well as in their child’s education.  We look forward to establishing a home-school-teacher-student connection.  You may request a parent-teacher conference by contacting the school at (323) 664-1176.

According to No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation, parents have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers and paraprofessionals.  Detailed information regarding the “Parents Right to Know” can be found in the LAUSD 2006-2007 Parent-Student Handbook.

Together we can make our school a success!
