Welcome to the Los Angeles Unified School District,
Federal and State Education Programs Branch.

We've Moved!

We have relocated to a place where we can serve you better. Please find us at: http://achieve.lausd.net/fsep for the most up-to-date information. This site will no longer be updated as of 3/17/14. If you have questions, please call us at 213-241-6990.


This Website provides public information on how the Federal and State Education Programs (FSEP) Branch provides technical support to LAUSD Schools.

To the left are the different programs that make up the FSEP Branch. Each link will take you to the corresponding page for that program, as well as give you even more specified links to further explore each program. On the navigation bar to the right, you will find a host of links to various files for the entire Branch. Announcements will house our recent and past announcements that have been displayed here on the home page. The FAQs page is currently under construction. When completed, it will contain a collection of frequently asked questions and the most requested files that we, as a branch, provide. The e-Library will take you to our repository of bulletins, memorandums and reference guides. The Related Links displays links to external sites that may be of use to you, in relation to the work that we do here in FSEP.

No Child Left Behind Waiver Act of 2001 Waiver Approved

The Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, has approved the No Child Left Behind Waiver Act of 2001 for the California Office to Reform Education (CORE) Districts which includes the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).  The approval of the waiver allows the District to immediately implement an alternative accountability system. This new accountability system will give participating districts more flexibility and accountability in how they measure student performance and raise academic performance at the district level. It should be noted, that the waiver will not relieve the District of the obligation to identify schools for improvement, corrective action, or restructuring.  It will however relieve districts and schools of the obligation to take required actions associated with those identifications. This is the first time the United States Department of Education has granted a waiver to a group of districts.

The eight districts participating in the CORE waiver include Fresno, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, Sanger and Santa Ana Unified School District.  Altogether, the districts represent over one million students.
