The Office of Federal Programs of Dickson County Schools coordinates and monitors formula grant programs awarded to the district through the state. These programs include Title I Part A - Improving Basic Programs, Title II - Teachers Quality, and Title III - Limited English Proficient programs. Each of these programs are uniquely different in their requirements and rules. The primary goal for all programs is to help the students that are considered at-risk. Being identified as at-risk could be from the lack of financial resources available, language barriers, or lack of parental involvement in the educational environment.
Dickson County School federal programs support the district’s mission statement of "In partnership with parents, community and students, the mission of the Dickson County School District is for students to master state and national education standards and to achieve their "personal best" socially, physically and emotionally."
