Calhoun Academy of the Arts The Greatest School on Earth

"Come One Come All" Title 1 Program

Calhoun Academy of the Arts has exciting news... we are now a Title 1 school. Title 1 is the largest federal aid program for elementary and secondary schools. This "extra hep" program has been in effect for over 40 years. Under Title 1, school districts receive federal funds to distribute to schools with above-average percentage of low-income children. Title 1 funds are over and above the state and local funds and can only be used to pay for programs that give extra help to qualifying schools. This is a terrific opportunity for our students, families, and school community. We are excited to share this news with you and look forward to sharing even more as information and funds becomes available.
