State Operated Programs apply for Title I funding on an annual basis under Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 for Neglected and Delinquent Youth. The VDOE SOP Specialists are responsible for the administration and monitoring of the grant award that SOPs receive. If you ever have any Title I related questions, please contact Scott Cheatham, SOP Support Specialist, at Scott.Cheatham@doe.virginia.gov.
An important aspect to remember regarding Title I funding is that the funds are intended to Supplement, not Supplant.
