Welcome to Federal Programs

Title I, the cornerstone of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, is the largest federal education program.  Many of the major requirements in NCLB are outlined in Title I - Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), teacher and paraprofessional requirements, accountability, sanctions for schools designated for improvement, standards and assessments, annual state report cards, professional development, and parent involvement.  On this site you will find basic Title I facts and lists of Title I schools.  For additional Title I information you may consider visiting the U. S. Department of Education website.

The Department of Federal Programs is comprised of various programs, some of these programs are financed through federal funding and other programs may be financed through state and grant funds.  One purpose of Federal Programs is to increase academic achievement by improving teacher and principal quality.  This program is carried out by: increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in classrooms; improving the skills of principals and assistance principals in schools; and by increasing the effectiveness of teachers and principals by holding LEAs (Local Education Agency) and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement. 

The staff of Federal Programs is committed to the academic success of all students from Pre-K through 12th grade.
