Title VI Documents

Title VI - RLIS

The Rural and Low-Income Schools (RLIS) program is an initiative that provides grant funds to rural LEAs that serve concentrations of children from low-income families.  Under the RLIS program, the US Department of Education awards funds by formula to SEAs, which in turn make subgrants to LEAs either by formula or competitively.  An LEA may use RLIS funds to support a range of authorized activities in order to assist the LEA in meeting its State's definition of adequate yearly progress.

There are many ways an LEA may use RLIS funds.  Carteret County Schools has chosen to use these funds under the guidelines of TItle II for maintaining highly qualified staff through professional development and Title I, to lower class size.

RLIS Eligibility

An LEA is eligible for an allocation under

the RLIS program if:

a) 20% or more of the children age 5 to 17 served by the LEA are from families with incomes below the poverty line;

b) All schools served by the LEA have a school code of 6,7, or 8 (assigned by the USED’s National Center for Education Statistics) and,

c)  The LEA is not eligible to participate in the SRSA program.
