Guymon Public Schools receives certain annual federal grants under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Funding under these grants is based upon student headcounts and census information rather than a competitive process (i.e. they are formula grants). All programs supported by these grants must be supplemental to our core education program, which is already funded by state and local taxes. The implementation of Federal Programs supports increasing, improving, and enhancing staff and student performance in the school district of Guymon. 

 Title I, Part A

Title I is designed to serve schools that enroll high percentages of low-income students. More than 80% of Guymon Public Schools Title I grant goes to such schools, where it is primarly used for intensified, extended, or specialized instruction that enables struggling or at-risk students to catch up and keep up. Guymon Public Schools also uses Title I to support elementary summer school, family literacy, and services to homeless students.

 Title I, Part C  

Education of Migratory Children

Funds support high quality education programs for migratory children and help ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards.

 Title II, Part A

Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High-Quality Teachers, Principals, or Other School Leaders

Title IV, Part A

Student Support and Academic Enrichment

Title V, Part B

Rural Low Income Schools (RLIS)

Title V serves to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants; and receive formula grant allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes.
