Federal Programs Department

Our mission is to ensure that the District's federal funding supports the vision, goals, and objectives of The City of Baker Public School System. The Title I program provides supplemental educational services (SES) to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education. Recognizing the ability for all students to master challenging academic standards and the necessity of strong family involvement, the district's Federal Programs ensure increased and improved educational opportunities for all students. We serve our schools and qualified Non Public schools with a high incidence of poverty, homeless students, and those residing in neglected and delinquent institutions by reducing barriers to learning, effectively communicating with parents, community and staff and by implementing Federal and State statute to achieve strategic goals.
