LAUSD TITLE I ENGAGEMENT POLICY
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.
The Elementary & Secondary Education Act was reauthorized on December 10, 2015, as the Every Student Succeeds Act, and requires that Districts annually rank and serve schools. Title I schools may implement one of two programs: Title I Schoolwide Program (SWP) or Title I Targeted Assistance (TAS).
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 IX COMPLIANCE NOTICE
Senate Bill 1375 recently added a section to Education Code 221.61, relating to Educational Equity, which requires that on or before July 1, 2017, individual schools post in a prominent and conspicuous location on their Internet websites specific information relating to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) to promote the goal of providing greater levels of gender equity in schools.
The Central High School Tri-C Title IX Complaint Manager is Amy De Gaetano, who can be reached by email at [email protected] or by phone at (213) 745-1901.

FOCUS ON LEARNING: 2021-2022 WASC REPORTS
Accreditation certifies — to other educational institutions and to the general public — that a school meets or exceeds established standards and is achieving its own stated objectives.
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges ("WASC") grant “institutional accreditation” after a comprehensive self-study followed by an on-site evaluation of the school's programs and services. This means that all diploma or degree programs and educational activities offered by a school are covered by the institution’s accreditation. The evaluation determines whether or not the school qualifies for regional recognition, but more importantly, periodic self-studies and reviews promote improvement in educational quality.
Recently, Central High/Tri-C was granted a six year accreditation for the years 2022-2028. Read our full self-study report.
PARENTS AS EQUAL PARTNERS
Parents as Equal Partners in the Education of Their Children, a resolution adopted by the Board of Education in December 2010, embraces family strengths and assets as essential to the academic success of students, and recognizes parents as the first and most important lifelong teachers of their children. To that end, a Task Force of parents, community leaders, teachers, and LAUSD administrators wrote the "Parents as Equal Partners" report, which supports collaboration between home and school to ensure student success. Central High/Tri-C welcomes parental and community engagement in school decision-making, and urges all parents to become familiar with the "Parents as Equal Partners" report.

APPLY FOR LUNCH!
One of the most important actions you can take to help your children and help the educational programs at Central High/Tri-C is to submit an LAUSD Meal Application at the start of school each year. Why is it so important?
For you: Your children may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school. Many people are surprised to learn that they qualify. Remember, federal money is allocated for just this purpose!
For our school: Central High/Tri-C depends on funds provided by the federal "Title I" program, and our Title I funding depends on the percentage of meal applications that qualify. If all Central High/Tri-C families apply, we'll meet the qualification threshold (50%) and receive these funds. If eligible families do not apply, we can miss the threshold and lose funding. More than 50% of Central High/Tri-C students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, but we won't receive the resulting funding unless we can show it.
So, remember to fill out a lunch application! It's easy, fast, and can make a huge difference for your children and their school. Click the link HERE for the Internet version of the lunch application. Thanks!
