Statesboro STEAM Academy Federal Programs

Federal Programs

Statesboro STEAM College, Careers, Arts and Technology Academy benefits from many of the educational programs funded through the federal government. This funding allows SSCCAT to offer additional training, instruction, technology, and other critical services which are not provided for through state education funds.

 

Title I Funds are used to supplement schools/system budgets. Title I funds are not used to supplant (take the place of) local, state, or other federal funding.
