Title I Programs

Title I, originally enacted in 1965 as part of the War on Poverty to help the most disadvantaged students, is the largest federal investment in elementary and secondary education. Title I funding helps improve teaching and learning in schools with the highest concentrations of poverty (based on the number of free/reduced lunch students at the school) to help them meet challenging state academic standards.

Title I Migrant

Title I Migrant provides supplemental educational and social services to migrant children and their families. At the preschool level, the focus is on language development and school readiness. Dropout prevention is the goal at the elementary, middle and high school levels. After-school tutoring, advocacy, counseling, social services and summer programs are provided. Parent involvement is a major focus.

Department of Juvenile Justice

The Juvenile Justice Educational Centers are funded in part by Title I Part D. This funding is used to carry out highly qualified educational programs to prepare students for secondary school completion and activities to transition the student from the correctional programs to further their education or employment.

Early Childhood Learning Services

Early Childhood Learning Services oversees all program for children before they enter kindergarten with exception of PreK ESE self-contained classes. These programs include Head Start, Voluntary PreK, Early Head Start, Early Head Start – Child Care Partnership and Lee Adolescent Mother Program.
