About Federal Programs

The Office of Federal Programs provides district-wide support for students and teachers through Federal Programs. These resources include Title I, Title II, Title III, Title IV, and Title X. The funding from these resources provides a focus on early literacy for children in Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade, class size reduction in first grade, professional development and innovative educational strategies that contribute to high educational standards ensuring that every child receives a quality education. These funding opportunities benefit children with support at all grade levels in the educational process.

Changes to ELL

The district ELL plan is under revision pending the new guidelines from MDE. These changes will be issued this summer.
