Federal funds are allocated to school systems to supplement existing system funding.  Both Caywood Elementary School and Lexington Middle School operate as School Wide Title I Programs, therefore, funds are used across the board to benefit all of the children in our schools.

In addition, Lexington City Schools applied for and received grants to help fund school resource officers.  This money went toward funding SROs on the campuses of Caywood Elementary School and Lexington Middle School.

Lexington City uses its federal funding to implement initiatives that otherwise may not be funded.  These initiatives provide valuable materials and services for our children, including:

  • All or part of the salaries for six employees including two instructional coaches to work with teachers and students across the system, two academic interventionists and two paraprofessionals
  • Professional development for staff
  • Instructional supplies for children
  • School Resource Officers on the campuses of Caywood Elementary School and Lexington Middle School
  • Parental engagement activities including support with the Henderson County, Lexington City Family Affair event
  • Education Initiatives for children identified as homeless
