Federal Programs 

Welcome to the Federal Programs Website!

"Federal Programs" is the umbrella for all ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education for schools, teachers, and students in high poverty areas.

PARENTAL NOTIFICATION
Under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended in Dec. 2015 by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) makes it clear that Congress expects local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools receiving federal funds to ensure that parents are actively involved and knowledgeable about their schools and their children’s education. The law requires schools to give parents many different kinds of information and notices in a uniform and understandable format and, to the extent practicable, in a language that the parents can understand.
