Categorical and Supplemental Educational Services

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:

Title I:  The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on all state content standards and assessments.  The intent of this funding is to meet the educational needs of low-achieving students.
 
Title II:  The purpose of Title II is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts to (a) improve teacher and principal quality through professional development and other activities, and (2) to ensure all teachers are highly qualified.
 
Title III:  The purpose of Title III is to provide supplementary programs and services to limited English proficient students, known as English learners (ELs), to assist EL students to acquire English and achieve grade-level and graduation standards.

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.

Supplemental Educational Services are provided to students of schools in Year 2 of Program Improvement as mandated under The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.Currently, MUSD has four schools in Program Improvement, Year 2 or beyond: Bradoaks Elementary School, Mayflower Elementary School, Monroe Elementary School, and Wild Rose Elementary School. SES provides free tutoring in English language arts and mathematics to eligible students of these two schools who choose to remain at their school.  Parents select the provider who best meets the needs of their student from a state-approved list of SES Providers.

School Choice

Public school choice is a critical component of NCLB because it offers a student enrolled in a Title I school that is identified for school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring an opportunity to attend a public school that has not been so identified.  Below is data for the number of students who were eligible for and who participated in the public school choice option, as well as the list of available schools to which students eligible to participate in public school choice may transfer.
