Our Federal Programs Department manages federal grant funding from Titles I-A, I-C, I-D, II-A, III, IV-A, and VI, and McKinney-Vento to support Salem-Keizer PreK-12 schools, the SKPS Native Education Program (NEP), the McKinney-Vento Program (MVP), and local private school Title programs. We are committed to supporting academic success for all through the innovative, effective, and compliant use of federal, state, and community resources.
ESEA: The Elementary and Secondary Education Act is the primary federal law affecting K-12 education. The main goal of the ESEA is to help all students in the state reach proficiency in meeting state academic standards.
ESSA: In December 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed, which ended Oregon’s flexibility waiver effective August 2016. The ESSA requires states to develop accountability models that meaningfully differentiate schools for supports. As part of Oregon’s commitment to strengthening school district systems, ODE partners with school districts to better support schools in need of comprehensive (CSI) or targeted (TSI) supports.
