Title IV

Overview:

Title IV, originally funded as part of the Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESSA) and recently updated with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is a federally-funded program designed to provide supplemental support to public school corporation, charter schools, and non-public school students (through their Local Education Agency: LEA). These funds can ONLY supplement what is provided in approved schools.

The emphasis of Title IV funding, according to the I-DOE’s application, is to “improve student engagement and achievement by improve student access to: STEM and/or computer science; Reading, Language Arts; Learning programs that provide post-secondary level courses […]; career and college counseling / guidance; and other courses, activities, and programs, or other experiences that contribute to a well-rounded education.”

In SY17/18, Indiana selected to distribute Title IV funds on a competitive basis through an application process with the following focus areas:

  1. Social emotional supports

  2. Provide all students with access to a well-rounded education

  3. Improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students (no more than 25% of our allocation funds may be used for this)

East Allen County Schools requested funds and received support to provide programming for our schools and for our participating non-public schools. This funding must be used only for approved programming by September 2019.
