Title 1 Allocations
Title 1 funds are used to assess student needs, as well as to design and plan appropriate math and reading programs for struggling learners. According to the United States Department of Education, these programs “must use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities.” Title 1 money pays for supplementary materials and additional educators. It also supports programs for early childhood, after school, and summer school. Homeless students who attend non-Title 1 schools and at-risk students who attend private or charter schools are also eligible for Title 1 services.

574 Title 1 schools in South Carolina are eligible to receive federally-funded educational visits! Thanks to Title 1 federal funding, Celebrate Freedom Foundation’s SOaR™ (School/Student Opportunities and Rewards) educational program has already visited schools in many counties across South Carolina — including Beaufort, Greenville, Horry, Orangeburg and Richland. CFF’s SOaR™ Program emphasizes the importance of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in middle schools and high schools. And nothing generates interest in STEM subjects like a CFF SOaR™ Program visit.
The program’s mission is to help build a workforce that can compete globally for jobs of the future, and to ensure America’s technological advantage in a global environment. STEM subjects provide skills and competencies greatly needed here in South Carolina, across the nation and globally.
A typical SOaR™ visit consists of three primary components:
The history of the Cobra AH1 F model helicopter and its deployment in the Viet Nam conflict and its continued use in peace time service. Our subject matter experts inform the students about how important it is to make thoughtful choices about choosing a career and how to navigate obstacles that present themselves in their life each and every day choices. The example of the choice between a friend with 1 cupcake and one with 12 cupcakes is used. Making appropriate decisions and its importance.
Our experts discuss the various technologies and career opportunities that were used in the design and manufacturing of the helicopter. Students are informed that the pilot and copilot appear to be the ones that get all of the glory. However, behind the scene there is a team of 34 skilled team mates that maintain the helicopter.
We show real world examples of emerging manufacturing technology that require Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
Sponsors Needed to Support CFF’s Mission
The U.S. Army and Lockheed Martin have sponsored visits during 2014. However we encouarage any organization to please contact us if they are interested in supporting CFF’s mission to motivate students to pursue careers in science, tehnology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).
