Resources and Technical Assistance

Welcome

The Unit of Federal Programs Administration is pleased to announce a redesign of our system for delivering support, technical assistance, and guidance to LEAs (Districts, Schools, and BOCES).

The UFPA offices [Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education, Office of Competitive Grants and Awards, Office of Migrant Education, and Office of Data, Program Evaluation and Reporting] will be collaborating to deliver these supports in a unified manner to better align with districts’ local implementation of federal programs.

We will be offering a series of professional learning opportunities, including webinars, policy briefs, networking meetings, and regional training opportunities.

ESEA Office Hours

The Federal Programs & Supports Unit will be hosting bi-weekly Office Hours on Thursdays from 2:00 to 3:30pm. This time is devoted to providing updates and answering questions, to the best of our abilities given the fast-changing current events.
