The major responsibilities of the Federal Programs Section are to administer all federally funded education programs and to provide technical assistance to local education agencies and schools by:
- providing technical assistance related to federal programs in local education agencies and schools as part of Alabama's support process;
- promoting, supervising, and coordinating statewide educational programs with federal programs;
- assisting schools in developing, revising, and implementing their schoolwide, targeted assistance, and continuous improvement plans;
- approving consolidated applications and amendments submitted by local education agencies
Receiving federal funds allows our school system to implement research-based initiatives that supplement and enhance the school system's outstanding educational programs. Most importantly, federal funds provide needed services to enrich the lives of our students.
