The mission of Program Monitoring and Support is to provide guidance and support for district and school site programs described in our district's Local Control Accountability Plan and School Plans for Student Achievement. This guidance includes assurances that allocated resources are utilized in compliance with Federal and State Department of Education policies.

Title I: Improving Academic Achievement

The Title I program is a federally funded program authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The purpose of the Title I program is to ensure all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education by improving basic programs operated by the school district. Title I schools may implement one of two programs: Title I Schoolwide Program (SWP) or Title I Targeted Assistance (TAS). In AUSD, all schools are designated as Title I schools with a School Wide Program.

Schools receiving these supplemental federal funds are required to provide services that raise the academic achievement level of TK through 12th grade participants. Additional support may be provided through professional development, health and guidance services. Parents of children being served have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the program through activities such as serving on the school site council; developing parental involvement policies and compacts; attending parent-teacher conferences, parent training and literacy workshops; participating as classroom volunteers, tutors, and aides, etc.

Expanded Learning Opportunities - After School Program

AUSD offers an After School Enrichment Program at each elementary site TK-6th Grade, 3 Middle School and 1 High School. The After School Program is provided in partnership with Bay Area Community Resources (BACR). After School Programs are available to all students interested that are attending in-person classroom instruction during the regular school day. Programs are funded through grants depending on a site’s grade levels and percentage of socio -economically disadvantage, foster, and homeless youth. Sites offering after school enrichment programs are listed list with contact information for each site’s coordinator.
