Federal Programs


Hondo ISD receives funds from numerous federal grants. Our Special Programs Department is responsible for the following federal programs in our school district:


  • Title I, Part A - Improving Basic Programs
    The purpose of Title I, Part A funds is to provide supplemental funding to our district for resources to help our schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state's student performance standards. Title I, Part A supports our schools in implementing a schoolwide program. Our program implements effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.


  • Title I, Part C - Education of Migratory Children
    The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to design and support programs that help migrant students overcome the challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, and other difficulties associated with a migratory lifestyle in order to succeed in school and to successfully transition to postsecondary education or employment.


  • Title II, Part A - Teacher & Principal Training & Recruiting (TPTR)
    TPTR provides supplemental funding to improve student achievement by elevating teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring, and retention strategies to improve teacher and principal quality and increase the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools. The program uses scientifically based professional development interventions and holds districts and schools accountable for improvements in student academic performance. Title II, Part A also funds three additional teachers in our district to reduce classroom size.


  • Title III, Part A - Language Instruction for LEP Students
    The purpose of the Title III, Part A program is to provide supplemental resources to our district to help ensure that our children who are limited English proficient attain English proficiency at high levels in the core academic subjects to meet state mandated achievement performance standards.


  • Title IV, Part A-Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program 
    Title IV, Part A - SSAEP is to improve students' academic achievement by providing all students with access to a well-rounded education; improve school conditions for student learning; and improve the use of technology.


  • Title V, Part B, Subpart 2 Rural and Low-Income School Program.
    The purpose of the Title V, Part B, Subpart 2 Rural and Low-Income School Program is to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently: 1.) lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants; and 2.) receive formula grant allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purpose.
    An LEA shall be eligible to receive Rural and Low-Income School funding if  20 percent or more of the children ages 5-17 years served by the LEA are from families with incomes below the poverty line.
