FEDERAL PROGRAM MONITORING
MISSION :: To ensure that federal and state education funds contribute to the goal of all students meeting or exceeding rigorous state standards.
What is the focus of our work?
The Federal Program Monitoring and Support Division supports approximately $463,000,000 in federal funds provided to districts and schools each year. The primary role of the Division is to provide grants administration, program monitoring, data collection and reporting, and to facilitate the necessary technical assistance to ensure not only compliance, but quality programs for students. Compliance is the first step toward program quality; monitoring is the springboard to providing technical assistance.
