Federal Programs Overview

Our mission for Federal Programs in the Houston County School System is to provide supplemental resources and support systems to ensure that we produce high-achieving students.

Title I, Part A – Academic Achievement of Disadvantaged Students

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 to achieve proficiency on challenging academic achievement standards set forth by the State.

Title I, Part C - Migrant Education Program

is designed to support comprehensive educational programs for migrant children to help reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves.

Title II, Part A – Teacher Training

is 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 III – English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

 is a 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 English Learners (ELs) by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards.

 Title X, Part C - McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program, State educational agencies must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public school education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth.
