Categorical Programs

Categorical Programs facilitates a variety of state and federal categorical programs, monitoring allocation, programmatic, and some fiscal compliance issues. We provide a variety of services, including technical support to school sites regarding requirements under the former No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA), school plan development, Federal Program Monitoring support, technical assistance with intervention and support for program and student improvement  at the K-12 level. We design tools and resources for schools and departments that facilitate the implementation of State and Federal Programs, assist in the development and monitoring of State and Federal Program budgets/expenditures at K-12 schools, and assist in the development and revision of the district Local Education Agency Plan.

In addition, Categorical Programs provides training in various state
and federal requirements that are associated with categorical programs, School Site Council nominations, elections and responsibilities, Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), and employee time audit support. We facilitate the District Advisory Council and coordinate federal services to private schools that are required by law.

The mission of Categorical Programs is to serve all stakeholders of both public and private schools with expertise, personalized support, and attention to detail. As laws and regulations are in a constant state of flux, the department stays up-to-date with current legal requirements, and finds ways to assist schools in achieving compliance in ways that support a continuous cycle of improvement to benefit all students.

Categorical Programs maintains an open door policy and welcomes all comments and questions regarding state and federal programs. Parents, staff, and the community are encouraged to call or contact the department at any time for assistance.
