  • Title I-A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
  • Title II-A - Teacher Quality
  • Title III - ESL Services
  • Title VI-B - Subpart 2—Rural and Low-Income School Program

This application is being developed through timely and meaningful consultation with State and local representatives, public and private schools to be served, including teachers and other staff, parents, students, community-based organizations and others with relevant and demonstrated expertise in drug and violence prevention activities (such as medical, dental, and law enforcement) including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Family/Parent Involvement Committees

Feedback from these committee meetings and surveys are used to evaluate the effectiveness of Federal Programs in the Union County Public Schools and are used to refine, improve, and strengthen the program.
