Monrovia Unified School District receives several forms of categorical funding, including Title I, Title II, Title III, and Economic Aid (EIA). EIA funding is made up of two categories, State Compensatory Education (SCE) and Limited English Proficient (LEP). These categorical funds are briefly described as follows:
State Compensatory Education (SCE): EIA/SCE is designed to provide quality educational opportunities for all children in public schools, recognizing that a wide variety of factors, such as low family income, pupil transiency rates, and large numbers of homes where a primary language other than English is spoken, have a direct impact on a child's success in school and personal development and require different levels of financial assistance be provided districts in order to assure a quality level of educational for all pupils.
Limited English Proficient (LEP): Services to LEP students are designed to develop fluency in English in each student as effectively and efficiently as possible, promote students' positive self-concepts, promote cross-cultural understanding, and provide equal opportunity for academic achievement, including, when necessary, academic instruction through the primary language.
