Title & Federal Programs

School Improvement and Federal Programs Administrator: Jeff Johnson
Federal Programs Coordinators:  Linda Grape and Roxanne Riedel

The Eugene School District 4J Office of Federal Programs mission is to provide supplemental funding and fiscal compliance guidance to all Eugene 4J schools and departments. Through these supplemental support services, our schools can continue to provide students with the essential skills needed to experience academic success.

Title I, Part A, Improving Basic Programs

Title I, Part A provides supplemental resources to the district to ensure all children, particularly low-achieving children in the highest-poverty schools, have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

Title IA is designed to help students served by the program achieve proficiency on challenging state standards.  The funding is used to supplement district and school resources to ensure a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to receive a high quality education.

  • Support services for elementary schools listed below
  • Supplemental reading and math intervention (including materials, resources, and staff)
  • Data driven decision making and a team approach
  • Progress monitoring to determine if the interventions are working
  • Title I Elementary Summer School, K-4
  • Extended day, after school services
  • Extended and enhanced Kinder services
  • Professional development for teachers, EA’s and principals
  • Parent engagement and partnerships support to Title schools
  • Homeless services, K-12, to support families in need and school attendance

School-Wide Programs

A school-wide program is built on school-wide reform strategies, rather than separate, add-on services. A school is allowed to use funds from Title I, Part A and other federal education program funds and resources to upgrade the entire educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement for all the students.

Schools identified as Title 1 school-wide programs are:

  • Arts & Technology Academy (middle school)
  • Awbrey Park Elementary School
  • Bertha Holt Elementary School
  • César Chávez Elementary School
  • Family School (Elementary school)
  • Howard Elementary School
  • McCornack Elementary School
  • River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School
  • Spring Creek Elementary School
  • Twin Oaks Elementary School
  • Village School (K–8 charter school)

Targeted Assistance Programs

The term “targeted assistance” signifies that the services are provided to a select group of children; those identified as failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the state’s challenging content and student performance standards, rather than for overall school improvement, as in school-wide programs. A targeted assistance school differs from a school-wide program school in several significant respects:

  • Part A funds may be used in targeted assistance schools only for programs that provide services to eligible children identified as having the greatest need for special assistance.
  • Part A funds must be used for services that supplement, and do not supplant, the services that would be provided, in the absence of the Part A funds, from non-federal sources.
  • Records must be maintained that document that Part A funds are spent on activities and services for only Part A participating students.

Schools identified as targeted assistance programs are:

  • Camas Ridge Community School
  • Edison Elementary School
  • Kelly Middle School
  • Willagillespie Elementary School
  • Eugene Waldorf School (private school)
  • O’Hara Catholic School (private school)


Parent & Family Engagement and Partnership

Parental involvement always has been a centerpiece of Title I. Parent and family involvement is defined as regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring that parents:

  • Play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning
  • Are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school
  • Are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child
