About the Programs

The following federal programs are utilized in the district:

Through a consolidated approach of planning and review of needs assessment data, the district utilizes federal allocations to support quality education for every child. These programs provide funds to enhance the educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement for all students in the Senatobia Municipal School District. These federal allocations support efforts such as effective programming, professional development, parent/community involvement, and the provision of a safe, orderly climate conducive to our teachers teaching and our students learning.

Title I, Part A Basic:
This program provides financial assistance through State educational agencies (SEAs) to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with the highest numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards. These special populations include, among others, students with disabilities, English language learners, migrant students and the homeless, each of which have separate programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA).

Title II, Part A:
This program combines the former Eisenhower Professional Development Program and the former Class-Size Reduction Initiative into one funding program. The purpose of Title II is to:

  • Increase academic achievement by improving teacher and principal quality.
  • Increase the number of highly qualified teachers in classrooms.
  • Improve the skills of principals and assistant principals in schools
  • Increase the effectiveness of teachers and principals by holding LEAs and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement.

The Safe and Drug Free Schools program is designed to support programs that prevents violence in and around schools; that prevent the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs; that involve parents and communities, and that are coordinated with related federal, state, school and community efforts and resources to foster a safe and drug-free learning environment that supports student academic achievement.
