Title I, Part A is a Federal program that provides financial assistance to schools to help ensure that all children are making progress toward meeting state academic content and student academic achievement standards. Bridges Academy does receive Title 1 funding and is considered a “School-wide Program.” As a charter school, Bridges Academy does not apply for Title 1 funding as we would for a competitive grant. Since we qualify to receive the Federal funding, we apply to the Department of Public Instruction explaining how we proposed to utilize those funds to improve academic achievement for the students at our school. Currently, the grant utilizes funding for these major purposes: (1) increasing student engagement and (2) offering interventions in identified core content areas.
If you have any questions regarding the Title 1 program at Bridges Academy, please call the school at 336-874-2721.
