UPDATE: MEM 4388.5: 2010-2011 Program Improvement Identification and Mandated Parental Notification Communication (REVISED September 7, 2010) 

This revision updates Memorandum MEM-4388.4 dated August 24, 2010, from Federal and State Education Programs. It has been updated to reflect a revision of the timeline per the California Department of Education (CDE) to meet PI identification and mandated parental notification under NCLB.

The purpose of Memorandum 4388.5 is to outline the District procedures related to the mandated parent notification letter that must be sent out when a school has been designated as Program Improvement under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. It can be found on the Program Improvement page.


UPDATE: Program Improvement (PI) Identification for 2010-2011(Revised as of September 7, 2010) 

The Federal and State Education Programs Branch has posted the 2010-2011 Program Improvement (PI) status and the form to file for the 2010-2011 PI Appeals process for all Title I schools. Click the PI link to on the left hand corner to access the PI/Hold list, the At-Risk List the Pending* List, and the Appeal form.

PI notification letters are also posted on the PI Page.

*Please note: High schools with grade twelve  students that met all AYP criteria (exclusive of graduation rate), are being  reported as “pending,” until graduation rates can be included.  High schools with grade twelve  students may also receive a “pending” status if safe harbor is needed to  determine their AYP status because meeting the graduation rate criteria is a  condition of safe harbor.

The CDE has applied to the U.S. Department of Education for a waiver of the 14-day notification requirement for schools. As a result, schools that received a “pending” status for PI and were not in PI in 2009–10 will not be required to notify parents until a final PI determination is made in November. At that time the  school has 14 days to provide the notification.
 
LEAs and schools that were in PI in 2009–10, will remain in the same PI status as 2009–10 and continue to implement their PI requirements from 2009–10 until the graduation data become available.
