Title IV, Part A Funds in Action — Floyd County Schools (GA)

In October 2020, Floyd County Schools (FCS), located in Georgia, launched a virtual homework help desk called “Focused Core Support.” Using Title IV, Part A funds, FCS provides current teachers with a stipend for helping to manage and support the virtual help desk. Students can sign up for tailored 20-minute one-on-one sessions with FCS math and English language arts (ELA) teachers via an online conferencing platform. The virtual homework help desk connects students with questions about a particular topic — for example, factoring quadratic equations for algebra I — with the appropriate teacher for additional support. Currently, FCS offers math support for grades K-12 Monday through Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and ELA support for grades 3-12 on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Learn more about “Focused Core Support” here
