Lago Vista ISD
Academics & Student Services

State & Federal Programs

Lago Vista ISD state and federal programs offer supplemental services to students, schools, and families with educational needs.  The goal of these programs is to connect students, families, and the community to provide education and support needed to overcome barriers and achieve academic success and personal success.
  • Lago Vista ISD provides supplemental support for students in special populations through the State Compensatory Education (SCE) program.

    State Compensatory Education
    The goal of the State Compensatory Education (SCE) program is to reduce any disparity in student performance or in the rates of high school completion between students at risk of dropping out of school and all other students (TEC Section 29.081).

  • Lago Vista ISD participates in federally funded programs designed to support students in special populations. The District participates in four formulary federal entitlement grants: Title I, Part A; Title I, Part C (Carl D. Perkins); Title II, Part A; and Title III, Part A. 

    Title I
    Title I is a federally funded program that supports local school reform efforts by offering improved teaching and learning opportunities to help low-achieving students meet our state’s challenging academic content and performance standards. 

    Carl D. Perkins
    The purpose of the Carl D. Perkins grant program is to more fully develop the academic and career and technical skills of secondary education students who elect to enroll in CTE programs.

    Title II
    Title II, Part A funds are designed to increase student achievement through improving teacher and principal capacity. These funds are also utilized to support professional development to help improve teaching, learning and supervision. 

    Title III
    The Title III, Part A Limited English Proficient (LEP) funds are used to develop programs for limited English proficient students to attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment, and meet the state content standards and student achievement standards.

    Title IV
    The overarching goal of Title IV, Part A, is to increase the capacity of state education agencies, local educational agencies (LEAs), campuses, and communities to meet the following three goals: (1) Provide all students access to a well-rounded education; (2) Improve academic outcomes by maintaining safe and healthy students; and (3) Improve the use of technology to advance student academic achievement.

ESSER Funding

The Elementary and Secondary Emergency Education Relief (ESSER) III act under the American Rescue Plan provided school districts with additional federal stimulus funding to address the impact that COVID-19 has had and continues to have on schools.  The American Rescue Plan Act requires that school districts make their Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services (RIPICS) Plan available to the public online. The plans must be in an understandable and uniform format; to the extent practicable, and written in a language that parents can understand. Alternatively the plan may be orally translated or provided in an alternative accessible format upon request.

Private Nonprofit (PNP) Equitable Services

School districts who receive federal grant funds are required to provide equitable services for eligible PNP school children, teachers, and other educational personnel.  The term “equitable services” refers to the process of providing students, teachers, staff, and families at eligible PNPs fair access to federally funded education programs and services, as appropriate. Services provided by the LEA for private school participants are designed to meet their educational needs and supplement the educational services provided by the private school.  Educational services or other benefits, including materials and equipment, provided under this section, shall be secular, neutral, and non-ideological.  The process depends on a “timely and meaningful consultation” between school district officials and officials of eligible PNP Schools.

A Private Non-Profit (PNP) school may opt to participate in applicable programs if it meets the following specifications:

  • The private school submits documentation of approved IRS non-profit 501(c)(3) status. Note: Homeschools in Texas are considered to be private schools, but to participate in ESSA equitable services the homeschool must also submit documentation of approved IRS non-profit 501(c)(3) status.
  • The private school is accredited, licensed, or otherwise operates in accordance with Texas state law.
  • The private school submits all requested documents to the District to determine eligibility.
  • The private school and/or its students (depending upon the program of interest) are located within the geographic jurisdiction of a local educational agency (LEA) that is eligible and receives funding. If the LEA does not receive funds for a specific program, it is not possible for the PNP to receive funds for that program.
  • The private school official consults in a timely manner with district officials to discuss service delivery.
    Under 34 CFR 77.1, the term “nonprofit” as applied to an agency, organization, or institution means it is owned and operated by one or more corporations or associations whose net earnings do not benefit, and cannot lawfully benefit, any private shareholder or entity.  If a church that operates a school meets the definition of nonprofit, the school does not need separate nonprofit status. (USDE Office of General Counsel).

Equitable services are provided to eligible Private Non-Profit Schools under the following federal ESSA Title programs:

  • Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs for Educationally Disadvantaged Students
  • Title II, Part A: Supporting Effective Instruction
  • Title III, Part A: English Learners (EL)
  • Title IV, Part A: Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants
