The Mission of the Access and Equity Department is to support school sites in providing equitable services to all students, but especially English Learners, Title I Participants, and/or Homeless. The Access and Equity Department also provides resources to parents of the students listed above. Those resources include Parent Education opportunities. Ensuring that the students served by our department have access to graduation, is our goal.
We provide strategic guidance and support services to:
- Title I Program - many of our elementary, junior high, and high schools are Title I schools with school wide programs. This means that all students who attend our Title I schools are eligible for services provided at that school for students who are not succeeding. Program Improvement - some of our Title I schools are considered Program Improvement Schools under the ESSA federal law. A program improvement school has a number of student who are performing below grade level. These schools offer intervention support during the school day. To learn more about the Title I Program at your school please attend your school's School Site Council Meetings.
- English Learner Programs and Supports - CVUSD serves students who are learning English and learning academic content at the same time by providing English Language Development on a daily basis as well as providing classroom content access and support throughout the day. Teachers are trained on the special methods needed to support English Learners, so that all of our EL will be successful academically and with their acquisition of English. To learn more about the English Learner Program at your school please attend your school's ELAC meetings, the district's DELAC meetings, and all meetings on the CVUSD LCAP.
