Federal Programs | Title I

Welcome to the Federal Programs Department!

Normandy Schools Collaborative participates in Federal and State grant programs and applies for these supplemental funds through the Consolidated Application process with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). 


Grant Awards include: 

  • Title I Part A, Basic Grant (Low Income/low achieving students) 
  • Title II, Part A (Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting)
  • Title I (a) School Improvement Grant (Targeted Comprehensive School Improvement)
  • and 1003 (g) School Improvement Grant providing funds for qualifying schools that have been identified as underperforming. 

Federal guidelines allow local non-profit private schools to participate with the public school district in federal programs. Those participating private schools are identified in Part I of the application and listed as our non-public Affiliate Schools.

As a requirement of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) legislation, the district continues to make the necessary adjustments and modifications to meet continuing legislative provisions for our qualifying schools and offer programs and services for our Scholars and Teachers.

The Federal Programs link helps to provide community members with information pertaining to Federal Programs. Schools receiving Title I are required to post and communicate information regarding certain programs throughout the district and in individual schools.
