Description of Federal Funds Programming
Liberty Union-Thurston Local School District receives Title IV-A, Title I-A, and IDEA federal funding. This page is dedicated to sharing information regarding the planning and use of the Title IV-A and Title I funds. IDEA information can be found at this link.
Title IV-A: Student Support and Academic Enrichment
Liberty Union-Thurston Local School District receives Title IV-A funding which is allocated to the elementary school for instructional materials and supplies to provide Student Support and Academic Enrichment in the area of STEM education. This aligns with the District Goal of providing well rounded educational opportunities for students.
Title I-A: Improving Basic Programs
Per the US Department of Education website, Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Liberty Union-Thurston Local School District receives Title I funding which is allocated to the elementary school in a Schoolwide program and supports all students, especially those that are identified as being at-risk of not meeting academic standards, specifically reading.
Please note that the Liberty Union-Thurston District also receives an allocation in Title II-A: Supporting Effective Instruction, but because all of our teachers are properly licensed those funds are moved to the the Title I-A budget.
