Federal Programs Overview

  • The UCPS Federal Programs utilize federal funding as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to provide educational opportunities for students in high poverty schools and to provide support for students with limited English proficiency. Federal funds provide professional development to all teachers across the school district to enhance teacher quality and student achievement.

    The Title II Federal Program focuses on improving teacher quality. These funds provide additional highly qualified teachers to reduce class size, as well as support for professional development in order to enhance educational growth that will impact student achievement.
