Program Descriptions

What are Federal Programs?

These programs provide federal assistance to schools, communities and children in need and has also impacted teaching and learning for children in need.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, signed by former President Bush on January 8, 2002, reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 (ESEA)/ESEA/Flexibility under President Obama- 2011 Elementary and Seconday Act/Flexibility and incorporates most of the major reforms proposed by for President Bush in his own No Child Left Behind framework for education reform, particularly in the areas of assessment, accountability, and school improvement.  It is based on four guiding principals:
         1.  Accountability and Assessment
         2.  Parental Involvement
         3.  Research-Based Programs (including High-Quality Educators)
         4.  Flexibility

These programs shall be used to supplement and not supplant non-federal funds that would otherwise be used for activities authorized under these subparts.
