Congressman Gonzalez Announces Over $12 Million in Final Title I Allocations for Central and South Texas School Districts
WASHINGTON – Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) today announced $12,001,631 in final Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) Title I formula allocations funds for Local Educational Agencies (LEA) in the 15th District of Texas from the U.S. Department of Education.
Title I Grants to local school districts are intended to ensure that the most financially and socially disadvantaged children have an equal opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on state academic assessments.
“Funding for education during a pandemic must be a priority,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “Teachers and students deserve access to every possible resource. Remote learning and public health will be an everyday part of our kids’ education. I will continue to support public schools and advocate on behalf of funding for modern and adaptable education programs for the 15th District of Texas to ensure our children are getting the best education possible. ”
The following allocations have been provided to LEA’s in the 15th District:
• Benavides ISD: $171,620
• Brooks County ISD: $1,264,941
• Falls City ISD: $63,966
• Floresville ISD: $840,166
• Freer ISD: $264,389

• Marion ISD: $169,916
• Mathis ISD: $1,121,306

• Seguin ISD: $1,896,802
• Stockdale ISD: $258,497
• Three Rivers ISD: $160,782
Final numbers differ from the preliminary allocations because of updates to the annually collected counts of children in locally operated institutions for neglected or delinquent children, in foster homes, and in families above the Census poverty line that receive assistance under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program (non-Census formula children data) and to LEA finance data used in the Education Finance Incentive Grants formula. There may be additional differences if a State were to report revisions to its State Per-Pupil Expenditure (SPPE) data.
Congressman Gonzalez continues to be an advocate for every child in the 15th District of Texas and will work to bring additional funding to schools across South and Central Texas.
