Federal Programs seek to enhance the school setting for all students and to meet the needs of Kerrville ISD's diverse populations by:
-Identifying and servicing students in different demographics with diverse learning needs,
-Improving student success by providing necessary resources/assistance to teachers, administrators, and parents to meet the needs of learners, and
-Increasing parental involvement in student learning by implementing effective parent involvement strategies.
Below are some of the programs that serve the diverse populations of Kerrville ISD.
Title I, Part A - Improving Basic Programs - Title I, Part A is a Federally-funded program designed to help schools improve the academic performance of struggling students. According to the Texas Education Agency's website: "...Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), provides supplemental funding to state and local education agencies. This funding pays for resources to assist schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families. These resources improve education quality and help ensure all children in low-income contexts meet the state's student performance standards. Title I, Part A programs use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientific research."
Kerrville ISD operates seven school-wide programs on campuses housing grades Pre-K-8. These campuses introduce Title I topics to parents in the fall, and continue to discuss a variety of topics throughout the year. One component of the Title I program is the District Title I Parental Involvement Policy. You can view the policy in English here and in Spanish here.
