Agenda Item #32
TITLE IV, PART A: Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Program
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). ESSA reflects the civil rights tradition of ESEA, which reflects our nation's longstanding commitment to equity of opportunity for all students. The new law has a clear goal of ensuring that our education system prepares every child to graduate from high school ready to thrive in college and careers. Newly authorized under subpart 1 of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA, the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program is intended to help meet these goals by increasing the capacity of State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), schools and local communities to:
1. Provide students with access to a well-rounded education,
2. Improve safe and healthy 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).
Funds are allocated by the Florida Department of Education based on the Title I formula resulting in an FY2018 allocation of $454,521.30 for Brevard Public Schools. There is no matching requirement.
