6110 - FEDERAL FUNDS

It is the objective of the Board of Education to provide equal educational opportunities for all students within the District. Therefore, it is the intent of the Board to study Federal legislation to provide better educational opportunities, better educational environment, and better physical and mental growth for each student.

The Superintendent shall review new Federal education legislation and prepare proposals for programs s/he deems would be of aid to the students of this District. The Superintendent shall approve each such proposal prior to its submission, and the Board shall approve all grants resulting from such proposals.

The Board regards available Federal funds of aid to local school districts and communities as a public trust. It forbids the use of Federal monies for partisan political activities and for any use that would not be in accord with Federal guidelines on discrimination. The Superintendent shall ensure that each draw of Federal monies is as close as administratively feasible to the related program expenditures.

It is the policy of the Monroe County Intermediate School District not to use Federal funds to supplant local funds. Generally, the "supplement, not supplant" provision means that Federal funds must be used only to provide additional services, staff, programs, or materials that could not be provided by the District absent the Federal funds. In other words, Federal funds normally cannot be used to pay for things that would otherwise be paid for with State or local funds.
