Federal Program Monitoring Support (FPM):
The SPS Administrator acts as the CAIS County Lead to provide support to LEA's in using CAIS during the FPM process. CAIS County Leads, in partnership with the California Department of Education, provide support to local educational agencies (LEA's) in the Federal Program Monitoring process and the use of CAIS in this process. Support activities may include providing CAIS technical assistance and trainings for LEA's.
These services, provided to districts for a fee, include the submission of the Consolidated Application in the CARS (Consolidated Application and Reporting System) and updating contracted districts regarding changes in the Consolidated Application requirements.
The SPS Administrator oversees direct funded and locally funded charter schools authorized through Butte County Office of Education. BCOE considers countywide charter petitions for countywide charter schools and charter petitions presented to BCOE on appeal when previously denied by the school district.
The SPS Administrator, as the BCOE 504 Coordinator, facilitates ongoing communication between District 504 Coordinators. Training and assistance is provided as needed.
