The district shall participate in those special programs which are funded by state or federal government for which a local need can be defined and for which a local program would be developed if funds were available. Board approval shall be required before submission of an application for such a program.
The superintendent or designee shall adopt procedures in order that planning, implementation and evaluation phases of a special program are in compliance with the rules and regulations of the funding agency. Applications may include, but not be limited to, programs for gifted, remedial and minorities.
Pursuant to federal law, school districts receiving Title I funds to provide educational services to students must do so in accordance with Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. It is the Board’s intent that Title I funds shall be used efficiently and effectively to benefit the academic opportunities and progress of students in school-wide or Targeted Assistance Programs.
Title I funds shall be used to provide educational services that are in addition to the regular services provided for district students. By adoption of this policy, the Board ensures equivalence among schools in teachers, administrators and auxiliary personnel and equivalence in the provision of curriculum materials and supplies.
