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.

    PARENTS’ RIGHT TO KNOW: Title I Parents have the right to request the qualifications of their child’s teachers. Parents who make this request will be notified in a timely manner.

    TESTING TRANSPARENCY NOTIFICATION: Parents have the right to request and be provided with information regarding any state or local educational agency policy regarding student participation in any assessments mandated by the state or local educational agency.  Click here for the 2019-2020 Testing Calendar.
