Virgil Middle School is a school-wide Title I, school which means that all students qualify for supplemental services. All teachers and support staff should have a copy of Virgil Middle School’s School-Wide plan. If you need a copy of the plan, ask the Categorical Office. Teachers interested in requesting funds should do so through their department chairs. Requests must be in compliance with Virgil’s School-Wide Plan.
Compensatory Education (Title I and EIA-SCE) program funds are used to pay for supplemental services needed to raise the academic achievement level of participating students in basic as well as in more advanced skills. Additional support may be provided through staff development and health and guidance services. Supplemental funds may not be used to replace or supplant the general funds and program the district provides the school.
All stakeholders, including certificated and classified staff, parents, and students, have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the program through the School Site Council, School Leadership Council, and on-going parent and teacher trainings.
