Federal and State Programs

  • Federal and State Programs provide resources for strategies that assist students most "at-risk" of failing and/or dropping out of school. These strategies include:

    • Instructional support through grant programs, including support for passing state & federally mandated assessments.
    • Campus support in "closing the gap" between high-performing and low-performing student groups through program ideas and recommendations.
    • Student/family support for students struggling with issues including academic, discipline, and/or social through connections with social services and appropriate school and community agencies.

    Resources to address these strategies come through a variety of federal and state grant and entitlement programs including:

    • Title I, Part A Program (Improving Basic Programs for Economically Disadvantaged Students)
    • Title I, Part C (Migrant Services - in collaboration with Region 10 Education Service Center, Richardson)
    • Title II, Part A Program (Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting)
    • Title III, Part A Program (LEP and Immigrant)
    • Title IV, Part A Program (Student Support and Academic Enrichment)  

    as well as under the state:

    • State Compensatory Education Program
    • McKinney-Vento Homeless Act
    • Dropout Prevention/Recovery

    All federal and state programs provide support to all of our schools and students and that Grand Prairie ISD remains in compliance with fiscal and programmatic requirements and regulations of all Federal and State programs.
