Title IV, Part A ESSA Webinar Series

The Office of Safe and Healthy Students invites you to participate in a series of webinars on the U.S. Department of Education's recently issued "Non-Regulatory Guidance on the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grants" (the Guidance). The SSAE program is authorized under Title IV, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) .

ESSA has a clear goal of ensuring the U.S. education system prepares every child to graduate from high school ready to thrive in college and careers. Th newly authorized under SSAE program is intended to help meet the goals of ESSA by increasing the capacity of state educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), schools, and local communities to: 

  • provide all students with access to a well-rounded education;
  • improve school conditions for student learning; and 
  • improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.
