Federal Programs / Resources
Title I, Part A - Improving Basic Programs
The purpose of Title I is to provide all children “significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.” To achieve that, states must develop accountability systems to identify and support schools with academically struggling students, and LEAs and schools must use their Title I funds to improve student outcomes, including academic achievement.

Title I, Part C - Migrant Education
Funds support high quality education programs for migratory children and help ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. 

Title I, Part D - Neglected and Delinquent
The Part D, Subpart 1, State Agency Neglected and Delinquent (N and D) program provides formula grants to State educational agencies (SEAs) for supplementary education services to help provide education continuity for children and youths in state-run institutions for juveniles and in adult correctional institutions so that these youths can make successful transitions to school or employment once they are released.

Expanding Opportunities for Each Child
The Expanding Opportunities for Each Child grant program is meant to expand access to and enrollment in school improvement activities for low-achieving students and students from low-income families. 

This grant's four focus areas of advanced coursework, career pathways, personalized learning, and credit recovery and academic acceleration services provide a unique opportunity for districts and community schools to create and expand programming that aligns with Ohio’s strategic plan for education.

Title II, Part A - Supporting Effective Instruction
In general, Title II funds can be used to provide supplemental activities that strengthen the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals and other school leaders. 

Title IV, Part A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment
The purpose of the Title IV-A grant program is to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of states, LEAs, schools and local communities to:
     1. Provide all students with access to a well-rounded education;
     2. Improve school conditions for student learning; and
     3. Improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
McKinney-Vento is the primary piece of federal legislation dealing with the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness in U.S. public schools. It was reauthorized as Title X, Part C, of the No Child Left Behind Act.

The McKinney-Vento program is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program, state educational agencies (SEAs) must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth. Homeless children and youth should have access to the educational and other services that they need to enable them to meet the same challenging state student academic achievement standards to which all students are held. In addition, homeless students may not be separated from the mainstream school environment. States and districts are required to review and undertake steps to revise laws, regulations, practices, or policies that may act as a barrier to the enrollment, attendance, or success in school of homeless children and youth.

Under the McKinney-Vento Act, children in homeless situations have the right to:
Go to school, no matter where they live or how long they have lived there;
Attend either the local school or the school of origin (the school of origin is the school the child attended when he/she was permanently housed or the school in which the child was last enrolled), if this is in their best interest;
Receive transportation to and from the school or origin;
Enroll, attend classes and participate fully in all school activities while the school arranges for the transfer of records;
Have access to the same programs and services that are available to all other students including transportation and supplemental services; and
Attend school with children not experiencing homelessness - segregation based on a student's status as homeless is prohibited.
