Students using laptops in a classroom


  • Welcome to Federal and Special Programs.

    This department oversees all federal programs (Title I, Title II, Title III, Title IV) programmatically and financially. The mission of the Federal and Special Programs department is to ensure that federal education funds contribute to the goal of all students meeting or exceeding rigorous state standards. This department supports over $24,000,000 in federal funds provided to the schools. The primary role of the department is to provide program monitoring, data collection and reporting and to facilitate the necessary technical assistance to ensure not only compliance, but quality programs for students. Our Title II, Part A funds are used to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified.

2020-21 GCS Stakeholder Survey

  • Each year the district applies for federal funding which includes Title I, Title II, Title III, and Title IV funds.  ESSA requires that a component of the application is input from our stakeholders.  We are asking that you take a moment to provide input to Guilford County Schools (GCS) regarding its efforts to support student achievement.  We are seeking input on the following questions from our Strategic Plan  in four goal areas.  Input will be reviewed by a team and taken under consideration while developing the 2020-21 LEA Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan/ Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP).
