Federal Programs Overview

  • Title I Part A is the largest single federal aid for elementary and secondary education. This grant is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging academic achievement standards that the State has set for all children.

    Title II, Part A is a federal grant to increase academic achievement by increasing teacher and principal quality. This grant helps by increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom, increasing the skills of principals and assistant principals and increasing the effectiveness of teachers and principals by holding Districts and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement. Title II also provides the opportunity for class size reduction at the secondary level.

    Title III is a 100% federally funded supplemental program that concentrates on delivering language instruction educational programs to students who have a primary language other than English. This program is designed to improve the education of limited English proficient (LEP) children and youths by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The program also provides enhanced instructional opportunities for immigrant children and youths.
