 HUSD Title I Intervention Adoption Spring, 2023
Adoption Process In July of 2021, our Title I team began the process of choosing a state-approved intervention program. The goal of the Title I team was to pilot the program this year (2022-2023), and adopt it in June, 2023. Vetted Intervention Programs
To begin this process, the team adapted the Arizona Department of Education’s list of critical components in order to create a checklist of things to consider:
  • In-person component
  • Professional development
  • Technology compatibility
  • Sequential and systematic phonemic awareness and phonics instruction

After narrowing the state-approved programs to 3 programs, the Title I team attended presentations by representatives from each company. Coyote Springs Elementary School, Humboldt Elementary School and Granville Elementary School chose to pilot Lexia, while Lake Valley Elementary, Mountain View Elementary and Liberty Traditional School chose SIPPS.

The Federal Programs department oversees many grant-related programs and district initiatives.  Our programs are designed to meet the needs of many of our students and families.  Below are highlights of the programs that are offered throughout our district.
Title I

The purpose of this title is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic standards and state academic assessments.  Title I, Part A program is designed to help disadvantaged children meet high academic standards by participating in the schoolwide program.  Schoolwide programs are implemented in high-poverty schools following a year of planning with external technical assistance and use Title I funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school.  School-based decision-making, professional development, and parent involvement are important components of our district’s Title I, Part A program. The transition to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provided the opportunity for the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to transform how it supports schools and Local Education Agencies (LEAs), through creating a state plan that reflects a shared statewide vision for Arizona's students and schools on topics such as accountability, funding, school improvement and grant-making systems.

Title II

The Title II Program provides professional development funding to Local Education Agencies (LEA's) that is tied to research-based curriculum that impacts student achievement. These funds are intended to increase the academic achievement of students by improving teacher and principal quality. In particular, Title II funds are used to provide continuous, ongoing training that helps teachers better understand academic subjects and to learn new instructional strategies focused on improved student learning. Local Education Agencies provide guidance, strategies, and resources to improve the effectiveness of teachers and leaders, achieve equitable access to effective teachers, support targeted professional development based on identified needs, and assist with the implementation of teacher effectiveness frameworks to evaluate and grow professionals in education.

Title III

The focus of Title III, a component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), is to help local education agencies (LEA's) ensure that English learners (ELLs) and immigrant students attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging state standards required of all other students. To achieve this goal, districts that receive Title III funds must provide high-quality professional development activities to staff involved in the instruction of ELLs, including elementary education, content, and English as a Second Language (ESL).

Within our department we also offer the following programs (see individual web pages for more information):
