Grenada School District’s Federal Programs director coordinates federal funds awarded to our district. The mission of this funding is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.
Our federal programs include:
• Title I, Part A (Basic)
Programs and services provided to districts with high percentages of low-income families.
• Title II, Part A (Effective Instruction)
Funds provided to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools. School districts may use funds to reduce class size.
• Title IV, Part B (21st Century Community Learning)
Provides opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities for children and their families outside regular school hours. Read more about our 21st Century program here.
• Title V, Part B (Rural Education)
Designed to address the unique needs of small, rural local education agencies that may lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for federal competitive grants and are underfunded by other programs.
• Title IX (Homeless)
Ensures that each child who is homeless has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education available to other students, including preschool students and unaccompanied youth who are homeless.
