FoundationalLearningIn July, 2014, Federal Programs was renamed Foundational Learning and Family Engagement. Our new department name and logo reflect the comprehensive services we provide, rather than the associated funding. Because we serve the same students and the same schools, the department’s mission aligns closely with those of the HCPS departments of Elementary Education and Exceptional Education. Our three main areas of focus (described below) are 1) providing foundational preschool experiences to our youngest and most vulnerable population, 2) providing foundational learning in reading and math in our most challenged schools, and 3) facilitating the engagement of all families in their children’s education.
