Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Section 1116 (e), students from low-income families attending schools that do not make adequate yearly progress for three or more years are eligible to receive Supplemental Educational Services (SES). ISBE’s Data Analysis Division determines school status for each school year and publishes a list.
Dupo Junior High School wants parents to be involved in our school community and their child’s learning. Our staff, with parental input, creates a School Improvement Plan (SIP) to look at academic achievement. Our SIP can also be found on the district website. Our main focus is to re-write our curriculum to the new Common Core Standards and improve math and reading achievement.
As part of our SIP, Dupo Junior High School uses federal and state grant money to provide or purchase:
- Intensive reading assistance for at risk students;
- After school math program, with transportation, for students in grades 7-8.;
- School wide professional development especially in the area of math, writing, and reading.
Without these grants, much of the extra assistance and materials we provide to our students would not be possible. If you have any questions about any of our programs to help students, please contact Victoria White, Title Coordinator, at 286 -3311, extension 3201.
