The Federal Program Monitoring and Support Services Division at the NC Department of Public Instruction provides LEAs and Charters with technical support, resources and training necessary to establish and maintain safe, orderly, and caring school environments for students and school personnel while ensuring that federal education funds administered contribute to the goal of all children meeting or exceeding state standards. The Division also collects and analyzes school crime, suspension, and dropout data in order to inform effective practices in the areas of discipline management, school safety, and dropout prevention.

The Program Monitoring Section works to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to access a high-quality education. Program Monitoring provides oversight of local programs to ensure compliance with federal regulations and to guard against waste, fraud, and abuse. Additionally, the section provides technical assistance and guidance in the areas of Title I (Part A, Migrant Education, Neglected and Delinquent Programs), Title IV-Safe and Drug Free Schools, the Rural Education Achievement Program, and Homeless Education.

The Support Services Section assists LEAs with programs that prevent violence in and around schools; that prevent the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; that involve parents and communities; and that are coordinated with related Federal, State, school, and community efforts and resources to foster a safe and drug-free learning environment that supports student academic achievement. The section includes 21st Century Learning, Character Education, and Alternative Learning Programs.

In addition to the sections referenced above, the division is also charged with facilitating Textbook Administration for the NC Department of Public Instruction.
