Welcome to the Title I site for the Glades County School District.

                               Title 1                       

This site offers information on federally-funded programs which are listed below.  These programs provide support for educationally disadvantaged and low-income students, migratory children, neglected, delinquent, or homeless children and youth.

 

 

Title I, Part A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Title I, Part A, provides local educational agencies (LEA) resources that help children gain a high-quality education and the skills to master the Florida Standards. Title I provides additional resources to schools with economically disadvantaged students. These resources provide additional teachers, professional development, extra time for teaching, parent involvement activities, and other activities designed to raise student achievement.

 

The Title I, Part C-Migrant Education Program (MEP)

The Title I, Part C-Migrant Education Program (MEP) funds additional educational programs for migrant children (ages 3-21). Migrant students have the same risk factors as other students, but they also face further challenges because of their frequent moves. The Title I, Part C (MEP) attempts to ensure that migrant students do not face additional educational challenges because of the differences in academic standards throughout the country. The program also promotes the coordination of educational and support services including the timely transfer of academic records.

Title I, Part C funds may be used for the following:

  • Identification of migrant children and youth for MEP eligibility
  • Recruitment of migrant children and youth for MEP services
  • School placement assistance
  • Identification and Recruitment (ID & R) Training
  • Interstate and intrastate coordination
  • Advocacy
  • Family Support
  • Determining the eligibility of migratory children and youth for Migrant Education Program services
