Federal and State Programs
Federal & State Programs
The Department of Federal & State Programs is responsible for grant writing, use of funds, compliance and evaluation for several government programs such as:
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – Title I, II, III, and IV;
Compensatory Education – funding for At Risk students; and
SHARS – Student Health and Related Services (program to receive Medicaid funding)
The department works with other departments, principals, and staff to ensure that grant funds are spent responsibly fiscally, programmatically, and equitably. In addition, this department works with schools in need of improvement and district/campus improvement planning according to areas directed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) under State and Federal accountability systems. Corrective action plans are developed in collaboration with other departments/campuses and submitted to TEA as required. The department establishes procedures to regulate grant spending, and ensure documents are available for government audits.
Planning and evaluation are conducted to make sure funds are spent according to the highest need, and are supplemental to the regular budget programs. Programs are evaluated to determine their impact on student achievement and improvement of instructional programs.
