Title I Program 2020-2021
South Florida Autism Charter Schools has been designated as Title I Schools for the 2020-2021 school year.
Title I funding flows from the U.S. Department of Education (as appropriated by Congress) to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), which then allocates funds to Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). The District adheres to Federal ESSA law mandates to ensure that Title I School wide Program funding is provided directly to eligible schools above the 75 percent poverty threshold. Eligible schools spend the funds allocated based on formalized School Improvement Processes approved by M-DCPS and FDOE.

Daily Tips for Parents:
With so many families in our community facing difficult times due to the CV-19 outbreak, unstable housing has become more commonplace and this is a top concern and priority for our district. To that end, we would like to remind all Title I schools that Project UP-START is a program that provides additional support services to any student who is currently experiencing unstable housing. This includes students who are sharing the housing of family or friends out of hardship, students living in temporary shelters, public places, or in a hotel/motel.
If you are living in an unstable housing situation and have not been already enrolled in the Project UP-START Program, please contact one of the following numbers:
