Federal Programs

Welcome to the Bozeman School District #7 Federal Programs page. Title I, III, VI and IX of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are District programs supported by both the Business & Operations and Curriculum & Instruction offices. Each of these federally funded programs provides resources to further the achievement of all students by providing support for their unique educational needs. Utilizing the Response to Intervention continuum we provide a network of supplemental services for our students.


Title 1/Academic Intervention Program

Title I funds are available to qualifying schools identified as high-poverty to ensure that poor and minority children have the same opportunity as other children to meet challenging State academic standards. These extra resources help support underachieving youth in a variety of areas including academic achievement in reading and math and school improvement through professional development and parent outreach. Both the Office of Public Instruction and Ed.gov website have more information. You may visit them at the following locations:

If you are interested in finding out whether your child qualifies for services, please contact your child's teacher or building principal.
