Special Funding Sources

Compensatory Education

Compensatory Education is a federally funded program designed to strengthen educational opportunities for students at-risk in kindergarten through grade 12. The goal of state compensatory education is to reduce any disparity in performance on assessment instruments administered under Subchapter B, Chapter 39, or disparity in the rates of high school completion between students at risk of dropping out of school and all other district students (Section 29.081. Texas Education Code).

Federal Title Programs and Grants

Federal programs offered at BISD cover a wide range of special population students. Students must meet certain criteria to receive supplemental services from Title programs. Title I offers extra assistance in basic reading and math instruction for students identified as the most at risk of failure or dropping out of school. Eligible students receive additional assistance from Title I teachers. Title II funds are utilized in the area of staff development for teacher and principal training and recruitment. Title III funds support English Language Learners either in our English as a Second Language program or our Dual Language program.
