The Office of Federal Programs manages funding received by the school district through federal sources. This funding enables students, teachers and other staff members to have equitable opportunities for achievement and professional growth.

 

Title I, Part A: Schoolwide Program– provides federal funds to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. These funds are used to support State and local reform efforts to improve teaching and learning for all students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement.

 

Title I, Part C: Education of Migratory Children – federally funded program designed to support comprehensive educational programs for migrant children to help reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves.

Title III: Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students – provides funds to supplement educational agencies in English language instruction to ensure English Language Learners, including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic language proficiency in English, and meet the same challenging State academic achievement standards as all students are expected to meet.
