Cawston Elementary is proud to offer many different programs to help support our students.
- Title I -- Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.
- Title IV, Safe & Drug – Free Schools / Communities -- The purpose of Title IV: Safe and Drug-Free Schools is to support programs that prevent violence and the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs in and around schools. Schools and districts are to involve parents and coordinate with community efforts in developing these programs. The goal is to foster a safe and drug-free learning environment that promotes student academic achievement.
- SAFE After School Program -- The Students Achieving in Fun Environments (SAFE) and Zone programs are funded by Proposition 49 voted on by the citizens of California to provide a safe and nurturing environment for youth following school dismissal.

- Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) -- PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. PBIS IS NOT a packaged curriculum, scripted intervention, or manualized strategy.
