Title Programs

Title I, Part A: College and Career Ready
This program provides Utah with Federal funding each year to help higher poverty schools provide supplemental educational services to meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged students.

Title I, Part C: Migrant Education
The goal of the Migrant Education program is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma or complete a General Education Development (GED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment.

Title I, Part D: Neglected or Delinquent (ND)
ND funds provide extended day and extended year offerings to youth in custody, primarily to students in secure care, "work camps," and observation and assessment setting, so that these students can meet the same rigorous academic standards for high school graduation that all students in the state are expected to meet.  Additionally, Education Transition and Career Advisory (ETCA) services are provided to assist ND students to successfully transition from their current educational settings to the next logical, positive educational and/or employment setting.

Title III, Part A: English Language Learner (ELL) Services
This program is designed to improve the education of Limited English Proficient (LEP) children and youths by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The program provides enhanced instructional opportunities for immigrant children and youths. Funds are distributed based on a formula that takes into account the number of immigrant and LEP students in the state.

Title IV, Part B: 21st Century
This program is a competitive federal grant for LEAs and Community or Faith-Based Organizations to serve students and their families attending schools with poverty levels of 40 percent or higher outside of regular school hours.

Title VII, Part A: Indian Education
It is the purpose of this program to support the efforts of local educational agencies, Indian tribes and organizations, postsecondary institutions, and other entities to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students, so that such students can meet the same challenging State student academic achievement standards as all other students are expected to meet.

Title VII, Part B: Homeless Education
Under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youths Program, State educational agencies (SEAs) must ensure that homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free public education, including a public preschool education, as is provided to other children and youth. States must review and undertake steps to revise any laws, regulations, practices, or policies that may act as barriers to the enrollment, attendance, or success in school of homeless children and youth.
