Time and Effort



Title I, Part A – Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
The purpose of this title is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

Title I, Part C - Migrant Education

The Migrant Education Program works to ensure that migrant students (aged 3 to 21) fully benefit from the same free public education (pre-K – 12) provided to other students. This program offers services to help reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that result from repeated moves.

Title I, Part D – Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth who are Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk
The purpose of this title is to ensure that children and youth in local correctional facilities are participating in an education program that is comparable to the one the LEA operates in the school that such children and youth would otherwise attend.

Title I Recognition and Awards Program: Academic Achievement and Distinguished Schools Awards
The purpose of this program is to recognize and honor those Title I elementary and secondary schools that exceed adequate yearly progress two or more consecutive years, or make the greatest gains in closing the achievement gap between student groups and to identify Title I schools as models of best practices for schools of similar demographics identified for school improvement.

Title II, Part A – Improving Teacher and Principal Quality
The purpose of this title is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified. The program focuses on using practices grounded in scientifically-based research to prepare, train, and recruit high-quality teachers.

Title II, Part B – Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP)
The purpose of this title is to improve academic achievement of students in the areas of mathematics and science through programs that:

Title III – Bilingual Education
The purpose of this title is to ensure that limited English proficient (LEP) students and immigrant children and youth meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards as all other children.

Title VI, Part A, Subpart 2 - Funding Transferability
The Funding Transferability option allows eligible districts the choice of transferring up to 50% of their grant awards under certain NCLB programs for use in supporting the purposes of another NCLB program to improve student academic achievement.

Title VI, Part B - Rural Education Achievement Program
The Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) is designed to assist rural districts in using federal resources more effectively to improve the quality of instruction and student academic achievement. It consists of two separate programs – The Small, Rural School Achievement (SRSA) program and the Rural and Low-Income Schools (RLIS) program. The SRSA program provides eligible districts with greater flexibility in using the formula grant funds they receive under certain state-administered federal programs (REAP-Flex). It also authorizes formula direct grant awards to these districts. The RLIS program authorizes formula grant award to states to make subgrants to eligible districts. Districts may use RLIS funds to support a broad array of local activities that support student achievement.

Title X, Part C - McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Program
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 must ensure that each homeless child and youth has access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children. Homeless children and youth should have access to the same challenging student academic achievement standards to which all students are held.

No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon Schools
The Blue Ribbon Awards honor public and private K – 12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.

Videoconference Network
The Videoconference Network provides two-way audio and video communication among 10 sites across the state. The system is useful for professional development and technical assistance for teachers, principals, superintendents, and other school employees. This technology reduces costly travel expenses and permits more efficient use of time bringing cost savings to Oklahoma schools.
