Our mission is to provide technical assistance, resources, and program monitoring of schools within the Taylor County School District to ensure all children have an opportunity to obtain a high quality education and to achieve proficiency on high academic standards.
The goal of the Federal Programs Department is to ensure that federal funds are utilized to provide a high-quality education to all students. All schools in Taylor County are classified as School-wide Title I Schools. Therefore, additional funding is received that allows the schools, and the district, to offer instructional resources, technological resources, professional learning for staff, parent engagement activities, and any other services that help meet the needs of the students but are not provided by local and/or state funds.
Title I, Part A is a multi-faceted federal entitlement program designed to “help all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state and academic standards and assessments."
The purpose of Title I is to “enable schools to provide opportunities for at-risk and disadvantaged children to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenging State content standards and to meet the challenging State performance standards developed for all children.” Title I is intended to serve students in core academic subject areas: Reading/Language Arts/English, Math, and Science and Social Studies.

Title IX, Part A: McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
The McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth program is designed to address the problems faced by homeless children and youth in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. This program works to ensure students living in homeless situations have equal access to the same education as other children and youth.
