Federally Funded Programs

  • Federally Funded Programs

    The federal government provides nearly $79 billion annually on primary and secondary education programs. Much of the funding is discretionary, meaning it is set annually by Congress through the appropriations process. Funds flow mainly through the Department of Education although other federal agencies administer some funding for education related activities.

    Federal education funding is distributed to states and school districts through a variety of formula and competitive grant programs. While the federal government contributes about 12 percent of direct funding for elementary and secondary schools nationally, the amount varies considerably from state to state.

    AGCS Participates in the following Federally funded programs:

    • IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act)
    • Title I, Part A (Reading and Math)
    • Title III (English Learners)
    • McKinney-Vento Homeless Education
    • ESSERS (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief)

  • ELL Avon Grove Charter School provides supplementary instructional support to our students for whom English is a secondary language (ESL) or who have limited English proficiency (LEP.)

    Students who are English Learners (EL's) participate in appropriate programs of language assistance to help ensure that they attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same academic content and academic achievement standards that all students are expected to meet.
