Programs Defined

LA 4 Program Funding:  As Louisiana's chief preschool program, the Cecil J. Picard LA4 Early Childhood Program provides economically disadvantaged children with early childhood education during a six-hour-a-day program and before- and after-school enrichment if funding is available. Priority is given to students from economically disadvantaged families.

 Title 1 Program Funding:  Title I is a federal grant awarded to the school district based on the number of economically disadvantaged students. JPPSS dedicates funding for  early childhood classes to students identified as eligible because they are at risk of failing to meet the State's academic achievement standards when they reach school age.
