The Water Valley School District's Office of Federal Programs supports quality education, providing effective supplemental programs and services which advance federal, state, district, and school-level educational goals.
Title I, Part A - Improving Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
Individual public schools with poverty rates above 40% may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "school wide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. Water Valley School District operates school wide programs in order to benefit a larger student population.
The purpose of these funds is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
