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 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, 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.
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.
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.
