Pearl Public School District receives federal funding from Title I, Title II and Title III. The purpose for Title I funds are to provide financial assistance to schools to help ensure that all children are exposed to challenging state academic content and meet student academic achievement standards. Title II funds are used to increase academic achievement by improving teacher and principal quality. Title III funds are for ensuring that English Learners, including immigrant children and youth, master English and meet the same rigorous standards for academic achievement as all children are expected to meet, including meeting challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards by developing high-quality language instruction educational programs
Title I funds provide resources, activities, and employees at the Early Childhood Education Center, Lower Elementary, and Northside Elementary. Title II funds are used throughout the district to provide professional development training resources for all the teachers and principals in the district, such as EMCED. Title III funds are combined with local funds in order to provide a teacher for English Learners students, grades nine through twelve.
Each program targets specific areas of need, and each program has guidelines for using funds. Funds are used to supplement the curriculum and meet the needs to be addressed by a particular program. Our website represents another effort of the school district to keep parents and the community informed. We are always looking to improve. We welcome and encourage your feedback.
