Federal Programs

Germantown Municipal School District receives federal grants for Title I, Title II, Title III, Title IV, and C. Perkins (CTE). 

Title I was passed in 1965 under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). It is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. Title I programs receive extra funding (Title I dollars) from the federal government. These dollars are used to:
  • Identify students experiencing academic difficulties and provide assistance to help these students;
  • Hire additional personnel
  • Purchase supplemental programs, materials, and/or supplies; and
  • Conduct parent and family engagement meetings, trainings, events, and/or activities
  • GMSD runs Title I funded Targeted Assistance Programs for middle school math at Riverdale and Houston Middle School.


Title II supports district wide professional development.  (Dr. Theodore Fuller)

Title III supports ESL instruction.  (Dr. Theodore Fuller)

Title IV supports Well Rounded Student programs, Safe and Healthy Schools, and Technology Education.  (Dr. Theodore Fuller)
