Federal Programs

 

The Federal Programs Unit is committed to providing support to Arkansas schools and districts in their efforts to improve student achievement and ensure that Arkansas students are proficient in meeting our state standards and prepared for a successful future.

The unit engages in consistent collaboration with all local education agencies that are subrecipients of Federal Grant Program funds to supplement and complement the efforts of local school systems, the private sector, public and private nonprofit educational research institutions, community-based organizations, parents, and students to improve the quality of education.

This office provides technical assistance when guiding schools in their efforts to apply ‘best-practices’ in both fiscal and programmatic matters and it will maintain communication efforts not only in the program planning stage, but the implementation stage as well.
