A variety of resources are available to support staff in providing a quality education to the students. The District receives State and Federal funding for programs, including Title I, School Improvement Programs, Gifted and Talented Education, Migrant Education, as well as participating in the BTSA New Teacher Program through a consortium with Davis and Esparto School Districts and University of California - Davis.
