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 No
Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), school plan development, Federal Program Monitoring support, and technical assistance with intervention
and support for Program Improvement Schools 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, such as Supplemental Educational Services and School Choice implementation, School Site Council election and duties, 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.
