Federal Programs
Title I, Part A: Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Title I is a part of the new ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) that came into effect July 1, 2017. It provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with a certain percentage of children of poverty to ensure all children have the means to meet rigor in State academic content and student academic achievement standards.  

Title I, Part A Family & Community Engagement Program

This program ensures the six structures of Family & Community engagement are in place to develop quality links between school professionals and the parents and community we serve. Surveys, email, text and school meetings and activities afford our parents opportunities to serve and have a voice in our programs.

Title I, Part A Foster Care Program

The Foster Care Program focuses on school access, improved educational outcomes, and enhanced academic stability for children and youth in foster care. Under ESSA, the Foster Care Program works closely with local child welfare agencies and local educational agencies to identify children and youth in foster care and to ensure ESSA provisions are met.

Title I, Part C: Education of Migratory Children

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded program designed to support comprehensive educational programs for migrant children to help reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves. Vidalia City Schools is part of a consortium as our migrant numbers do not support a stand-alone program.

Title I, Part D: Program for Neglected or Delinquent Children

The purpose of Title 1, Part D is to improve educational services for children and youth in local and State institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth to insure these children have the same opportunities to be successful in meeting the state academic achievement as all other students. Vidalia City Schools currently serves the needs of Paul Anderson Youth Home.
