Agenda Item for Board Meeting of 2/6/2020
Agenda Category: REVIEW AND ACTION
Agenda Item Title: Title I Waiver - Theuerkauf Elementary School (20 minutes)
Heidi Smith, Director of State, Federal, and Strategic Programs
Staff will present information and request approval of a waiver for Theuerkauf School to remain a Title I Schoolwide Program for the remainder of 2019-20 school year.
Based on data collected for the winter release of the Consolidated Application Theuerkauf has fallen below the minimum low income eligibility criteria (40%) to operate as a Title I schoolwide program. However, Theuerkauf meets the criteria to apply for a waiver in order to continue as a Title I schoolwide program.
The Board of Trustees must approve a waiver request based on the fact that Theuerkauf has greater than 25% of students who are still considered low income and that continuing as a schoolwide program is the best way to serve students. Theuerkauf will also submit a revised school plan for student achievement for approval and has met with the School Site Council and English Learner Advisory Committee to review the changes and update committee members on their Title I status.
Title I funding in the amount of $131,735
That the Board approve the request for a waiver for Theuerkauf School to remain a Title I schoolwide program for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
