The Kyrene School District currently has three schools designated as Title I.
Kyrene de los Niños
Kyrene de las Lomas
Kyrene de la Colina
Kyrene de los Niños, Kyrene de las Lomas and Kyrene de la Colina are designated as Schoolwide Title I programs. Title I schools receive federal funding to provide supplemental services to academically at-risk students. Students in a Title I school may receive services regardless of their socioeconomic status if indicators predict the student is at-risk academically. Read more about ESEA.
Using Title I funds, Kyrene provides additional support to Title I students. That support would otherwise be impossible, based on the current per-pupil funding mechanism. The District's Title I program supplements by funding the following, depending on funding levels and the most pressing needs of the school:
Push in/Pull out reading and math instruction
Math and literacy coaches
Additional instructional assistants to support classrooms
Professional Development for Title I teachers
Summer Academy and Kindergarten Readiness programs
Parent Education classes
The Title I staff is dedicated to serving and supporting students and families eligible to receive Title I services. Kyrene's leadership, especially Title I principals, work closely with the Title I staff to provide effective interventions and evidence-based best-practices, which are in-line with Title I guidance-to students receiving Title I services.
