Kyrene's Title I Program

The Kyrene School District currently has three schools designated as Title I.

They are:

  • Kyrene de los Niños [SW]
  • Kyrene de las Lomas [SW]
  • Kyrene de la Colina [TA]

Kyrene de los Niños and Kyrene de las Lomas are designated as Schoolwide Title I programs, Kyrene de la Colina is Targeted Assistance. 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
  • Program supplies
  • 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.
