K-12 Funding Sources: Navigating the Money Trail
With the economy limping along, growing ever-so-slowly, funding new programs or expanding existing ones can be challenging for K-12 educators. But it isn’t impossible! In this webinar, presenters and education funding experts Deb Ward and David DeSchryver shared tips and pointers for navigating the money trail. The webinar focused on identifying funding paths for K-12 ELL and World Language programs, including navigating the money trail for federal funds and identifying potential new sources of program funding. Funding programs discussed included: Title I (formula grant for supplemental funds targeted for at-risk or failing students), Title III (English proficiency programs for LEP students), Title IV (community learning centers providing academic enrichment opportunities to complement academics), State General Funds, and Private Grants.
