Federal Grants & Programs
We are committed to providing the best services and supports to ensure all our students succeed.
- Manage and oversee all federal funding authorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) commonly referred to as Title Programs.
- Ensure schools and teachers receive support through these grants to better support our students.
- Coordinate and collaborate with schools to support the requirements of our federal grants.
- Monitor grant performance to ensure compliance with federal and state law.
What is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)?
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015, and represents good news for our nation’s schools. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students.
What are the Title Programs?
Our Title grant programs support our students and educators in being successful. Each “Title program” has a different focus.
- Title I – Supporting the academic achievement of at-risk students and supporting parent involvement
- Title II – Supporting our educators in being effective
- Title III – Supporting English language learners
- Title IV – Student support and academic achievement
- Title VI – Supporting our Native American students
What do our Title Grants Support?
Our district’s title grants provide additional support for our students who are struggling with reading and math, support for our students’ social and emotional needs, support for parent engagement, support for our English language learners and Native American students, and support for our teachers to improve their teaching.
Our priorities are identified based on each school’s needs assessments and improvement planning. We would love to hear your thoughts about how we could better serve your students. Please contact your school to get involved in your school’s improvement planning process or contact the district.
