Federal Programs

There many federal programs that impact education in North Carolina. From this launching point, educators, parents, and citizens can go to specific federal programs for information and resources. These federal programs address diverse needs of North Carolina's schools and student population. 

The US Congress approved the latest reauthorization of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act in December 2015 - the Every Student Succeeds Act.  This is the law that provides most of the federal programs in support of K-12 education.  The December 2015 action replaces the 2002 No Child Left Behind law, and begins the rule-making process at the federal level and the planning process in North Carolina and all other states.

Funds are provided for Title I and its many parts:  School Improvement, Reading First, Even Start Family Literacy, Migrant Children, Children who are Neglected or Delinquent, and Comprehensive School Reform.

Title II addresses teacher and principal training, and Enhancing Education through Technology. Title III (Part A) covers English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement and Academic Achievement. Title IV pertains to Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities, and 21st Century Learning Centers; Title V, Innovative Programs, and Title VI, Small, Rural Schools Achievement Program, and Rural and Low-Income School Program.

Title IX, part of the Education Amendments of 1972, provides for gender equity, and Title X addresses provisions for the education of homeless children.
