State and Federal Education Programs

The Washington Unified School District State and Federal Programs team provides technical support for staff in the following areas:

 

Title I, Part A, Fiscal and Program Requirements

The purpose of Title I is to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.

In accordance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the Washington Unified School District implements a Title I Schoolwide Program (SWP).

Schools receiving these supplemental federal funds are required to provide services that raise the academic achievement level of K through 12th grade participants. Additional support may be provided through professional development and 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.

Title III, Fiscal and Program Requirements

The purpose of Title III is to ensure that English learner (EL) students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency (ELP) and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet. LEAs that participate in the Title III EL program are required to maintain locally updated plans that delineate the use of Title III funds. The updated plans must include a budget detailing supplemental activities provided to EL students through use of Title III funds. (Title III, sections 3114(a) and 3116(a).)

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

The ESSA requires schools receiving Title I funds and operating a schoolwide program (SWP) to develop a school plan that includes:

  • A comprehensive needs assessment (pursuant to ESSA)
  • A process for evaluating and monitoring the implementation of the School Plan and progress towards accomplishing the goals
  • Stakeholder involvement
  • Goals to improve student outcomes, including addressing the needs of student groups
  • Evidence-based strategies, actions, and services
  • Proposed expenditures
  • 2019-20 School Plans for Student Achievement
  • 2018-19 School Plans for Student Achievement

School Saftey Plan (SSP)

The Washington Unifed School District considers student safety a top priority.  Each school site has developed a comprehensive School Saftey Plan (SSP). As required by California Education Code Section 32286(a), Each school shall review and update its plan by March 1.  A copy of the current SSP is available in the main office of each school site.

School Accountability Report Card (SARC)

California public & nonpublic, nonsectarian schools annually provide information to the community to allow public comparison of schools for student achievement, environment, resources & demographics.  All Washington Unified schools complete a SARC annually.  

Local Control and Accountability Plan

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three year plan describing how District funds will be used from California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  The LCAP is revised and adopted annually. Washington Unified’s LCAP pairs student, parent, employee, and community stakeholder feedback with proven learning strategies to create and action plan of services supporting English Learners, Foster Youth, and Low-Income students.

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

As stated by the California Department of Education, “The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is hallmark legislation that fundamentally changed how all local educational agencies (LEAs) in the state are funded, how they are measured for results, and the services and supports they receive to allow all students to succeed to their greatest potential.” Funding for schools is now based on the demographic profile of the students in the district and provides greater flexibility about how these funds will be used to improve student outcomes…read more
