2104 Policy – Federal and/or State Funded Special Instructional Programs

Bellingham Public Schools will participate in those special programs that are funded by the state and/or federal government for which a local need can be defined and for which a local program would be developed if funds were available.

Pursuant to federal law, school districts receiving Title I funds to provide educational services to students must do so in accordance with Title I. It is the intent that Title I funds will be used efficiently and effectively to benefit the academic opportunities and progress of students in schoolwide or targeted assistance programs.

Title 1 funds will be used to provide educational services that are in addition to the regular services provided for district students. By adoption of this policy the superintendent ensures equivalence among schools in teachers, administrators and auxiliary personnel, and equivalence in the provision of curriculum materials and supplies.

The superintendent or designee will adopt procedures to ensure that planning, implementation and evaluation phases of a special program comply with the rules and regulations of the funding agency.
