Stakeholder Input Sought on New Title I Funding Distribution Plan

In December, the Board of Education voted to increase the Title I school funding threshold from 40% to 75%. (The threshold is based on the number of students at a school who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.) The change would take place over a five-year period, starting in 2012-13. The Board members are looking for input from employees, parents, students, community members and other stakeholders on developing the implementation plan as well as identifying priorities for Title I funds. Please take a moment to share your input by taking a short survey in English or Spanish. For a printed copy of the survey, call (619) 725-5609.
