Title I Services
Title l provides funding to schools with high numbers of students that qualify for free and/or reduced priced lunches to help ensure that all children meet challenging Common Core State Standards. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic standards.
Title l is designed to reinforce and supplement efforts to improve teaching and learning for students farthest from meeting the standards. Individual public schools with poverty rates above 40% may use Title l funds, along with other federal, state, and local funds to operate a "schoolwide program" to enhance the instructional program for the entire school.
Within the last 3 years, USD 475 Geary County Schools received permission from the Kansas State Department of Education to carry over more than 15% of the Title I allocation. USD 475 did not spend all of the 2015-2016 regular Title I allocation. The district is requesting an Ed-Flex Waiver of the Title I carryover limitation of "once every 3 years" in order to carryover more than 15% of its 2015-2016 Title I allocation into 2016-2017.
If you have questions about this waiver or would like to comment, email Luan Sparks - LuanSparks@usd475.org.
