TITLE AND FEDERAL PROGRAMS
Our mission is to support schools and families in their efforts to increase student achievement and success. We serve all schools, all staff, and all students through collaborative efforts in the areas of comprehensive school improvement. The Office of School Improvement is responsible for managing a number of district programs which support students and staff.
Title I, Part A provides supplemental resources to the district to ensure all children, particularly low-achieving children in the highest-poverty schools, have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and State academic assessments.
The purpose of Title II, Part A is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified.
The purpose of Title III is to benefit Limited English Proficient (LEP) children and immigrant youth. The Act states that LEP students must not only attain English proficiency but simultaneously meet the same academic standards as their English-speaking peers in all content areas.
Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in any federally funded education program or activity. The Title IX Coordinator for our district is Ryan Swearingen. He can be reached at 541-830-6558
The purpose of Title X is to ensure that homeless students are provided a free, appropriate education despite the lack of a fixed place of residence or a supervising parent or guardian.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act prohibits discrimination based on disability. All staff and administrators have the responsibility of ensuring that all students with disabilities are identified, evaluated, and provided with needed accommodations and services, resulting in a free appropriate public education.
