The Instructional Services department is responsible for compliance with the requirements of federal grant programs.

Title I 
Title I is a federal program that provides supplemental funds to ensure that children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. The intent of Title I funding is to meet the educational needs of low-achieving students enrolled in the highest poverty schools and to close the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children. Title I funding is based on the percentage of students who qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

In Riverside Unified School District, Title I is a Preschool through 12th grade program, and funds for this program are based on a per pupil amount for each student who qualifies for the NSLP enrolled at the school:
  • Preschools and Elementary with a NSLP percentage of 55% and higher are eligible for Title I
  • Middle schools with a NSLP percentage of 60% and higher are eligible for Title I
  • High schools with a NSLP percentage of 65% and higher are eligible for Title I.

Title III
The purpose of this program is to provide funds for helping English Learner (EL) students attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging state academic standards as all children are expected to meet. Funds must be used for increasing the English proficiency of EL children by providing high-quality language instruction and high-quality professional development for their teachers and other school staff. All sites are eligible for Title III services from the district office.

Title IV
The purpose of Title IV is to provide students with a well-rounded education including programs such as college and career counseling, STEM, arts, civics and International Baccalaureate/Advanced Placement. These funds are also used to support safe and healthy students with comprehensive school mental health, drug and violence prevention, training on trauma-informed practices, and health and physical education. Finally, these funds support the effective use of technology that is backed by professional development, blended learning and ed tech devices.  All sites are eligible for Title IV services from the district office.
