Program Improvement

A Title I school is identified for PI when, for each of two consecutive years, it fails to make AYP in the same content area (English-Language Arts or Mathematics) school-wide or for any numerically significant subgroup, or on the same indicator (Academic Performance Index [API] or high school graduation rate) school-wide.  Learning Community Charter School, which includes Step-Up Academy and Hearthstone School, is in program improvement.

A Title-I funded LEA will be identified for PI when, for each of two consecutive years, it fails to make AYP in the same content area (English-Language Arts or Mathematics) LEA-wide or for any numerically significant subgroup, and does not meet AYP criteria in the same content area in each grade span (grades 2-5, grades 6-8, and grade 10), or does not make AYP on the same indicator (API or graduation rate) LEA-wide.  Butte County Office of Education is a program improvement district.

Program Improvement, School Choice, and Supplemental Educational Services (SES)


Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB), students who attend a Title I funded school that is identified for Program Improvement (PI), corrective action, or restructuring must be given the option of school choice and/or Supplemental Educational Services (SES).  The school choice provision allows all students attending such a Title I school the option to transfer to another public school that is not in program improvement, within a specific school range, or is not persistently dangerous.  Title I schools not making adequate yearly progress (AYP) for more than two years must provide Supplemental Educational Services (SES).  Supplemental Educational Services are tutoring or other supplemental academic enrichment activities beyond the regular school day.

As a Title I school, Learning Community Charter School (Step-Up Academy and Hearthstone Schools) is offering Choice and/or Supplemental Educational Services (SES) during the school year.  Parents of these schools will be notified of their school's status and of the process for supplemental services. 

The district is required to inform you of your right to transfer your child(ren) to a non-Program Improvement public school of your choice. However, all other BCOE schools serve special populations (Table Mountain, Special Education, RISE).

For more information about SES/Choice, you may contact your school site principal or Barbara Mandelbaum by email or at 532-5644.
