The mission of the Office of State and Federal Programs is to provide high-quality services, ensure compliance, and guarantee that State and Federal grants supplement and align with the district's vision, initiatives and programs. The Office of State and Federal Programs is responsible for organizing and managing communications with the Ohio Department of Education for State and Federal programming contained within the South-Western City School District's Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan. The largest grant managed by the office is the Title I section of the Every Student Succeeds Act (also known as ESSA and formerly known as ESEA).
