Floydada ISD participates in many State and Federal Programs. Below is a list of the programs and descriptions that Floydada ISD participates in:
- Title I, Part A – Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Education Agencies (LEA) provides supplemental funding to state and LEAs for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state’s student performance standards. Title I, Part A supports schools in implementing either a school-wide program or a targeted assistance program. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.
- Title I, Part C Migrant Education – The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to design and support programs that help migrant students overcome the challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, and other difficulties associated with a migratory lifestyle in order to succeed in school and to successfully transition to postsecondary education or employment.
- Title I, Part D, Subparts 1 and 2 – Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At Risk provides supplemental funding to state and LEAs to improve the educational service to children in facilities for the neglected or delinquent so that these students will have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the state content standards in order to meet the same student performance standards that all children in the state are expected to meet. Title I, Part D has a primary focus of facilitating the transition and academic needs of students from correctional programs to further education or employment. The division administers the two formula programs.
- Title II, Part A – Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund provides supplemental funding to improve student achievement by elevating teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring, and retention strategies to improve teacher and principal quality and increase the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools. The program uses scientifically based professional development interventions and holds districts and schools accountable for improvements in student academic performance.
- Title II, Part D – Enhancing Education Through Technology provides supplemental funds to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. It is also designed to assist every student in becoming technologically literate by the end of eighth grade and to encourage the integration of technology resources and systems with teacher training and professional development to establish research-based instructional models.
- Title IV, Part A – Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities provides state and LEAs with supplemental funding to develop and enhance education programs targeting violence prevention and drug prevention strategies in elementary and secondary schools for all students and employees. The Principles of Effectiveness require school districts to conduct a needs assessment, use research-based activities, establish performance measures, and include meaningful and ongoing consultation with parents. The division administers the LEA formula program.
- Title IV, Part A, Subpart 3 – Gun-Free Schools Act requires states receiving NCLB funding to have a state law in effect requiring LEAs to expel any student who is determined to have brought a firearm to school or possessed a firearm at school, for a period of no less than one year. LEAs must annually report on any expulsion in order to receive federal education funding.
- Title V, Part A – Innovative Programs provides state and LEAs with supplemental funding to implement promising education reform programs, provide a continuing source of innovation and educational improvement, help meet the special educational needs of at-risk and high-need students, and support programs to improve school, student, and teacher performance.
- Title VI, Part B, Section 6211 – REAP (Rural Education Achievement Program) assists eligible LEAs in addressing local academic needs more effectively by giving them greater flexibility in the use of limited federal resources. It is designed to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently (1) lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants; and (2) receive formula allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes. Eligible LEAs are those either with a total number of students in average daily attendance less than 600; or each county in which a school served by the LEA is located has a total population density of fewer than 10 persons per square mile. Additionally, the LEA’s served campuses must be designated with a School Locale Code of 7 or 8 as determined by the United State Department of Education’s National Center for Educational Statistics.
