Casa Grande Elementary School District

Title I-A Improving Basic Programs Operated by LEA’s

Our Title I project continues to be the largest federal program for the school district. Each school must establish its own needs assessment, goals and objectives and budget for the year. All district K-5th grade schools participate in the program and are school-wide in format. This program provides supplemental reading and math services to students. This program also funds at least one Title I teacher at each location, whose primary responsibility is coaching and professional development. Schools may provide instruction to students in the classroom and during out of school programs. A coordinator oversees the development and production of the preschool packets and monitors their distribution to district families. Additionally, a parent liaison assists all schools in providing special parental involvement projects. This grant supports summer school tuition for those students needing additional academic intervention.

Title II-A Improving Teacher Quality

This program provides funds for teacher recruitment and staff development activities to ensure that all teachers are “highly qualified.” Funds are also used to hire teachers for class-size reduction in grades one through three.

Title II-D Enhancing Education Through Technology

This program provides for the integration of technology into classrooms to improve the quality of instructional activities and increase learning. These funds are also used to support computerized testing of student academic achievement and for staff development activities.

Title III Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient & Immigrant Students

The purpose of the Title III grant is to ensure that limited English proficient students develop their English language skills in order to meet the same academic content and achievement standards that other children are expected to meet. These funds provide for language instruction educational programs designed to help students achieve these standards.

Title IV-B 21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st Century CLC grant provides for out of school services to students attending two K-5th grade schools in the district. This program provides an academically oriented after school program called OASIS. The district also partners with the Casa Grande Parks & Recreation Program in order to offer recreational opportunities for students during the school year and summer months. This grant supports a strong parent component by facilitating numerous adult educational opportunities. Funds also provide scholarships to the district summer school.
