Troy Schools to Apply for Funding



The Troy City Schools will apply for a series of federal fund allocations in the 2018-2019 school year earmarked to provide specific programming and services for eligible schools and students in the district.  These federal grants include:  Title I (academic needs of low-achieving, low income children), Title I-D (neglected, delinquent and at-risk children), Title II – A (teacher quality), Title II-D (Technology), Title III-LEP (language instruction for limited English proficient), Title III – Immigrant (language instruction for immigrant students) and Title IV-A Student Support.   Anyone who would like to submit written suggestions outlining the use of these funds is asked to forward their written responses to Chris Piper, Superintendent, Troy City Schools, 500 North Market Street, Troy, Ohio, 45373, by August 13, 2018.


A meeting will be held at the Troy Board of Education located at 500 N. Market Street on August 13, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.  A presentation of the intended uses of Title Funding will be made.  There will also be an opportunity for public comments and input from program participants and parents regarding the usage of these funds.


The district will also apply for federal funding for the education of handicapped students within the district.  The district allocation has been predetermined to be approximately $1,988,855 for the 2018-2019 school year.  These monies when granted to the district as Special Education IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Public Law 105-17) funds would be used to purchase instructional and related student services for the district’s students with disabilities.  Equipment and supplies may also be procured with these allocations as long as the expenditures meet the eligibility standards set by the federal guidelines.


As part of an ongoing effort to identify, locate, and evaluate all disabled children ranging in age from birth through the age of twenty-one, the Troy City Schools in cooperation  with other Ohio school districts, private schools located in the jurisdiction of the Troy City Schools, and other community agencies, will continue to implement its Child Find Program.  Federal guidelines establish fourteen different handicapping conditions for which children may not be visible in the community, because they are either pre-schoolers or their parents are not aware of the availability of programming extended by school and community-based providers.  If you are aware of a disabled child who may not be receiving educational and/or related services for their handicapping condition, please contact Beth Marshal, the Director of Pupil Services, Troy City Schools, 500 North Market Street, Troy, Ohio  45373, or call 937-332-6700.
