Welcome

The Department of Federal Programs procures, monitors and utilizes federal funds for the following programs in order to provide quality federal educational opportunities for all students and staff to develop the skills necessary to reach their maximum potential as responsible, productive citizens and life-long learners.

ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001) Programs:

         Title I, Part A (Improving Academic Performance of the Disadvantaged)

         Title II-A (Teacher and Principal Quality)

         Title III (English Acquisition, Language Enhancement Academic Achievement)

Every year the Paterson Public School District receives funds from the federal government to provide various educational services.

Title I monies provide supplemental instructional services in the content areas of reading and mathematics to students in grades K-4 that meet the criteria for service.

Title II-A monies are provided to increase student achievement through enhancing the teacher and principal quality through professional development, recruitment, hiring and retention.

Title III monies provide the opportunity for the district to assist in teaching English to limited English proficient children and helping these students meet the same challenging standards of all students.

All federally funded programs provide for participation of non-public schools.

Core Beliefs

The Office of Federal Programs ensures that all students obtain a high-quality education and achieve, at a minimum, proficiency on the challenging Common Core State Standards as measured by state assessments, accomplished by:

  • Ensuring that schools implement all requirements under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA)
  • Providing guidance, professional development and technical assistance to District and school personnel
  • Identifying District needs and implement strategies and programs to address those needs
  • Monitoring the implementation of School Improvement Plans (SIPS) and School-wide Plans
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of extended learning opportunities such as after-school programs and summer programs and recommending programmatic changes based on findings
  • Providing fiscal support for the Perkins Grant to support college and career readiness
  • Collaborating with New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) and Regional Achievement Centers (RAC) staff
  • Implementing School Improvement Grants (SIG)
  • Providing supplemental educational services for non-public school children
  • Supporting parental and community involvement

Our goal is to enhance educational opportunities and ensure equal access to services leading to improve student achievement for all students by providing leadership, technical assistance, and financial support.

Non Public Schools

A non-public school means an elementary or secondary school within the state, other than a public school, offering education for grades kindergarten through 12, or any combination of them, wherein any child may legally fulfill compulsory school attendance requirements and which complies with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 [N.J.S.A. 18A:46A-2(b)].

Nonpublic schools that are not for profit can receive services from federal programs and several state programs for their eligible students. Services are administered through the local public school where the nonpublic school is located. To be eligible for these services, a nonpublic school must be registered with the NJ Department of Education and complete the Nonpublic Enrollment Report annually which is located on the NJDOE Homeroom under NONPUBLIC ENROLLMENT.

Non-Public Schools Technology Grant

The New Jersey Nonpublic School Technology Initiative Program is authorized by the 2016-17 Appropriations Act, and authorizes aid to be paid to school districts and allocated for nonpublic school pupils in a manner that is consistent with the provisions of the federal and state constitution.
The program requires each public school district in New Jersey to provide technology to all qualifying students attending a non-public school located in the public school district. The two-part goal of the program is:

  • to provide nonpublic school students with computers, educational software, distance learning equipment and other technologies that can improve their education by meeting their specific educational needs and
  • to give nonpublic school teachers the skills, resources and incentives to use educational technologies effectively to improve teaching and learning in the classroom.

The following non-public schools receive Technology Grant funds for the 2014-2015 school year:
Compassion House Outreach, Dawn Treader, Gilmore Academy, St. Gerard.

Perkins

The  Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006, emphasizes local accountability for yearly results, program improvement, increased coordination within the CTE system, stronger academic and technical integration, connections between secondary and postsecondary education, and stronger links to business and industry.

The purpose of this act is to develop more fully the academic and career and technical skills of secondary students and postsecondary students who elect to enroll in CTE by developing and assisting students in meeting high standards, integrating academic and career and technical instruction, linking secondary and postsecondary education, increasing state and local flexibility, collecting and disseminating research and information on best practices, providing technical assistance and professional development, supporting partnerships among diverse stakeholders, and providing individuals with the knowledge and skills to keep the U.S. competitive. These purposes are significantly expanded to reflect increased congressional priorities in key areas, such as partnerships, professional development and economic competitiveness.

According to the act, funds made available to eligible recipients of the grant must be used for career and technical education programs.
