Title I, Part A
Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) receives an annual allocation of federal dollars to provide supplemental resources to schools that have high percentages of children who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch. ESSA and Florida law determine the eligibility of schools and how funds are allocated to eligible schools and programs. The funds provide resources that are used to improve student achievement by providing supplemental staff, interventions, teacher training, and Family Engagment. Funds also provide services to pre-kindergarten, homeless, neglected and delinquent students, and to ensure that non-public school students, their parents, and teachers receive equitable services. Title I schools receive supplemental resources through Title I, Part A.
All Title I schools are required to employ only state-certified teachers and highly-qualified instructional paraprofessionals. If at any time your child is taught by teacher who is not certified, your school will notify you. In addition, you have the right to:
- Request whether your child’s teacher and/or paraprofessional meet the state certification or qualification requirements for the grade levels and subject areas in which they provide instruction.
- Request whether a teacher and/or paraprofessional is teaching under emergency or other provisional status where state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.
- Request information on the baccalaureate degree major of a teacher and/or paraprofessional and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and/or paraprofessional, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.

Title I, Part D
SCPS receives an annual allocation of dollars under Title I, Part D of ESSA to support educational programs in local institutions for neglected or delinquent youth or in correctional facilities. The intent of the program is to provide services to help students successfully transition back to their zoned school upon release from the facility, to further their education or to gain employment. The Title I, Part D program serves three centers: Eugene Gregory Academy, John Polk Alternative School, and the Seminole County Detention Center. Title I, Part D funding also serves at-risk students in one high school, one middle school, and students who attend the after-school program at the Velma Hayes-Williams Community Resource Center. These schools and center do not receive Title I, Part A services.
