• Title IV, Part A – Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program

    Program Overview

    This program is intended to help meet goal of ensuring our educational system prepares every child to graduate from high school ready to thrive in college and careers by increasing the capacity of the state education agency, local education agency, schools, and local communities to: 1) provide all students with access to a well-rounded education, 2) improve school conditions for student learning, and 3) improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.  [ESEA Section 4101]

    Stakeholder Engagement

    During the design and development of its grant application, the LEA must engage in meaningful consultation with stakeholders in the area(s) served by the LEA [ESSA 4106 (c) (1).  Such stakeholders must include, but are not limited to: parents, teachers, school leaders, students, community organizations, government representatives, and others with relevant and demonstrated expertise.  LEAs must also engage in continued consultation with stakeholders throughout the school year to improve and coordinate SSAE activities with other activities conducted within the community.

    Needs Assessment

    An LEA must conduct a Comprehensive Needs Assessment to examine the needs for improvement to be eligible to receive an allocation of $30,000 or more in SSAE funds. [ESEA 4106 (d)]  The needs assessment must be conducted during the initial plan development, and every three years thereafter.  Click here for an optional template: Title IV Needs Assessment
