ABOUT THIS SCHOOL
SCHOOL PROFILE
Welcome to C.A. Jacobs Intermediate School, home of the Cougars! As you walk through the doors of
C.A. Jacobs, you will feel the warmth and welcome of the school that supports all students. Each year is
dedicated to furthering and supporting the ongoing academic, personal, and social growth of our
students. We work together to build upon our successes as well as in adapting to the changing needs of
our students and school community. A key idea in our approach to student achievement is to carefully
consider and address individual student needs. We believe all students can learn and that it is our
collective responsibility to ensure that they all learn at high levels. We accomplished through providing a
challenging curriculum that is delivered in a safe environment by a dedicated, nurturing staff.
C.A. Jacobs Intermediate School is located in The City of Dixon which was founded in 1868 upon the rich
farmlands of Solano County. Linked with the rest of California in 1874 by the Southern Pacific Railroad,
Dixon merged with nearby Silveyville residents to form what is today one of the most productive
agricultural communities in Northern California. While historically an agricultural town, Dixon, California is
now primarily a residential community of 18,000 for people who work in Sacramento, Davis, and the San
Francisco Bay Area. While the city has experienced growth it remains a “small town at heart,” whose
residents pride themselves on the high level of community involvement.
C.A. Jacobs Intermediate School was originally built in 1964 and serves approximately 540 students from
the community and surrounding areas in grades seven and eight. The ethnic distribution at C.A. Jacobs is
36% Caucasian, 55% Hispanic, 3% African American, 2% Asian, 0.7% American Indian or Alaskan
Native, 1% Filipino, and 0.7% Pacific Islander.

responsible for fiscal reporting and monitoring and cannot delegate their authority to a site at which the

purposes of Title III and only for those students the LEA has identified for services. For more
information please contact the Language Policy and Leadership Office at 916-319-0845.
