Consolidated Grant Programs
Title I| Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged | McKinney-Vento Student Assistance Act
The Title I program is designed to provide compensatory educational support to disadvantaged children. Funding allocated to the school district and individual schools is based on their level of poverty. Services are based solely on academic need. A primary goal of Title I is to raise student achievement in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.
The Title I program may also provide NCLB choice options and supplemental educational services so that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. The McKinney-Vento Student Assistance Act requires that sufficient funds be set aside to address the educationally related needs of homeless children who are in Title I and non-Title I schools. Additional funds are set aside to provide services to Red Clay students attending private schools in New Castle County who have identified academic needs in math or reading and reside within an attendance zone for a Red Clay Title I school.
Title II | Improving Teacher Quality | Technology Integration
The Title II program provides funds to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and the school district improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified. Funds are to be used to ensure all students have effective teachers that have subject matter knowledge and teaching skills necessary to help all children achieve high academic standards, regardless of individual learning styles and needs.
Title II funding also provides funding to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in schools. Funding supports the initiative that students will be technologically literate. Funds are also used to encourage the effective integration of technology with teacher training and curriculum development to establish successful research-based instructional methods.
Title III | Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students
The Title III program provides funds to increase English proficiency of English Language Learners. The program provides high-quality professional development to ESL/bilingual teachers, mainstream teachers, principals and other school staff and community organizations.
