Federal Programs are grants and financial aid from the US Department of Education that are designed to help the nation's schools achieve equity for all students. These programs provide additional resources to schools and districts to provide assistance to those students who are considered economically disadvantaged. While funding from the federal government is based upon census data of children ages 5 to 17 within the school district, allocations to schools are determined on parent income level and is typically derived by those students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Scott County Schools offer a diverse range of federal program activities including but not limited to: family engagement / parental involvement, professional development, instructional supplies, equipment, and personnel.  The supplemental funds provided by the federal government enhance the opportunity for the students of the Scott County School System to be successful.
