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
- 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.
