FCSD3 SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT FOR GRANT APPLICATION
Florence County School District Three is seeking public input on the use of federal funds before submitting federal grant applications for the 2014-2015 school year under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
The district anticipates receiving funds for Title I, II and III. The grants are for Title I, Part A – Helping Disadvantaged Children Meeting High Standards; Title II, Part A – Preparing, Training and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals; Title III – Limited English Proficiency. The deadlines for these grants range from June 1 through July 1.
Because these grants deal with federal funds, the district is asking for comments and suggestions from parents and community stakeholders. There will be a public informational meeting about Title I, II and III on Thursday, April 24, at 4 p.m. in the conference room at the District Office located at 125 South Blanding St. in Lake City. Any private school interested in participating or anyone interested in submitting comments or suggestions should contact Laura Hickson, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction at 843-374-8652, ext. 1115 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
