Federal Programs: Serving the Needs of Students
The Office of Federal Programs manages funding received from federal and state sources. This funding enables students, teachers and other staff members to have equitable opportunities for achievement and professional growth. The Federal Grants office distributes funds from several federal grants; Title I Part A, Title I Part D, Title II, Title III, Title IV, Title VI, McKinney Vento, and Carl Perkins.
Federal Programs Complaints
The district receives federal funds and has established a complaint process to help ensure compliance with federal grant requirements. Any student, parent, community member or employee who believes the district has violated any regulation connected with the expenditure of federal funds should notify the district using the process outlined in Board of Education Policy 2007, which governs complaints.
