Title I - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
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 raech proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards. The purpose of the federally funded Title I, Part A Program is to provide supplemental support to improve teaching and learning for students in high-poverty schools so that these students meet the state's challenging content and performance standards. Title I is one program under the Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA). For more information, visit the web site www.edu.gov.
All of the Title I schools in the Enterprise City School System operates as school wide. Schoolwide programs use their funds to improve the entire program of the school so that all students are impacted. Enterprise City Schools has six schoolwide program schools: Enterprise Early Education Center, Harrand Creek Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, Pinedale Elementary and Rucker Blvd. Elementary School.
Title IC - Migrant Education Program (MEP)
Definition - Any student who has moved with his/her parents in the past 36 months for the purpose of working in agriculture work (crop harvesting, nursery work, dairy production, dairy or vegetable or meat processing).
Identification - When the student registers, each student's parent or guardian should complete the Home Language Survey which includes the Migrant Education Program Occupational Survey. If the survey indicates a "yes" response to question 1 or 4, the student could possibly be a migrant. The determination will be made by state migrant personnel.
Title II, Part A - Teacher and Principal Training
The purpose of Title II, Part A is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and effectiveness.
Title III / State ESL - English as a Second Language
It is the intent of the Enterprise City School System to provide every student identified as an English Learner (EL) appropriate services to enhance his/her ability to learn English. English learners will be offered the same fair and appropriate education as all other students.
The goal of Title III/ESL supplemental instruction is not to replace or to negate a student's primary home language. Rather, the program is to enable an English learner to become competent in the core subjects and proficient in listening, speaking, reading and writing in the English language. This supplemental instruction emphasizes the acquisition and mastery of English, to enable EL students to participate fully in the benefits of public education. It is the goal of the Enterprise City School System to ensure that all identified EL students meet or exceed state standards.
Title IV - Student Support and Academic Enrichment
The purpose of Title IV-Part A, The Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, is to support programs to prevent violence in and around schools; prevent the illegal use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco by young people; and foster a safe and drug-free learning environment that supports academic achievement. Without a safe and orderly learning environment, teachers cannot teach and students cannot learn. Students and school personnel need a secure environment, free from the dangers and distractions of violence, drug use and lack of discipline, in order to ensure that all children achieve their full potential.
Title V - Rural Education Initiative
The purpose of the program is to provide financial assistance to rural districts to assist them in meeting their state's definition of adequate yearly progress (AYP). Applicants do not compete but rather are entitled to funds if they meet basic eligibility requirements. Eligibility is restricted by statute. Awards are issued annually to SEAs. The Rural and Low-Income Schools program is an initiative that provides grant funds to rural LEAs that serve concentrations of children from low-income families.
Title IX - McKinney-Vento (Homeless)
The Enterprise City School System is committed to addressing barriers related to homelessness. We will ensure that each child identified as homeless has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, as provided to other children and youths. Addressing problems with succeeding in school and access to services will be a priority.
