To the Department for Federal Programs and Grants


The mission of the School District of DeSoto County is to prepare all students to be successful citizens and productive workers.


  • The Department of Federal Programs and Grants supports that mission by providing guidance and oversight for federal projects throughout the school district. It is our goal to bridge the gap of our low performing students, children of migratory farm workers, and students with English deficits, by implementing appropriate initiatives to meet their needs. 


  • This work is accomplished in compliance with all federal and state regulations, while maximizing the use of federal funds allocated to the school district each year.
