Westchester High School can have several seats

Westchester High School is begging for money?  On the schools home page they are begging for help to obtain Title I funds.  Title I funds are for schools that have a high number of POOR people living in the surrounding area of said school.  The CA Department of Education states:  Title I, Part A federal funds help to meet the educational needs of low-achieving students in California’s highest-poverty schools.

This is supported by lunch applications where parents have to list their income.

Please help our school earn Title 1 funds. All families should apply for free & reduced price lunch, even if the students do not plan on eating at the cafeteria. Simply by filling out the application, you earn money for Westchester.

Westchester, CA is NO WHERE NEAR HIGH POVERTY.  Here is a chart of the median income over in Westchester showing the majority of the residents make between $50k-$75k annually.

St. Bernadette’s had this same issue.  The students they served came from poor areas, but the affluent Baldwin Hills community prevented them from receiving Title I funds and were ultimately forced to close.
