Federal Programs
The Simpson County School District provides supplemental services through the Office of Federal Programs. This office is responsible for the administration of Title programs, as well as homeless services and other federal initiatives.

Title I programs include teacher positions to reduce classroom size, professional development for teachers, and supplemental services and supports for students. Title II also funds teacher positions to reduce classroom size, as well as professional development for teachers and administrators.

The goals of these programs include student proficiency in core academic subjects, as well as parental involvement. Please contact the Office of Federal Programs if you have any questions.
English Language Learners (ELL)
EL Coordinator: Misty Hanna

English-language learners, or ELLs, are students who are unable to communicate fluently or learn effectively in English, who often come from non-English-speaking homes and backgrounds, and who typically require specialized or modified instruction in both the English language and in their academic courses.

The purpose of the Title III program is to ensure that limited English proficient (LEP) children, 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.

The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that children of migrant workers have access to and benefit from the same free, appropriate public education, provided to other children.
