Federal & State Educational Programs
Welcome to our Federal Programs Department. This department administers federal programs and funding to the Wilkes-Barre Area School District’s nine schools as well as non-public schools in an amount exceeding $4 million per year. These funds provide vital support to our students District-wide. Grants help to provide supplemental academic programs, supplemental educational services, supplemental classroom supplies, after-school programs, professional development, and parent involvement activities.  
 
The department also provides support and leadership for integrating federal funds into school reform efforts of teaching and learning and ensuring all children achieve.

Our goal is to provide all students, focusing on out most at-risk population, with the best educational opportunities available and to keep all stakeholders updated on the supplemental activities funded via our grant programs.

It is only with the cooperation and involvement of all stakeholders in the educational lives of our students that we will reach this imperative goal. Thank you ahead of time for the collaborative effort between school and home. Please join us to make this year as dynamic and rewarding as possible.

The purpose of this webpage is to inform all stakeholders of the Federal Programs available to our students as well as the grant programs the District currently has to offer. On this site you can secure information on programs, allocations, grants, and forms. For this reason, we ask that you check back often. We will do our best to update these pages on a regular basis. We also encourage and greatly appreciate input from parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members.
