ESSA Discontinued Programs

By DeLilah Collins, E-rate and Ed Tech Coordinator, Federal Programs
Thursday, February 25, 2016 - 10:34am

The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act formally removed programs that have been defunded or will no longer receive funding. The list below outlines some of the eliminated programs and where support for the activities can be found in ESSA. For Title II B, Colorado will receive funding through 2016-17. The other programs listed below were previously defunded, but will remain REAP eligible through 2016-17.

CDE will provide an overview of all changes by program in the near future.

Title II Part B Math and Science Partnerships – (Funding through 2016-2017)

Purpose: To improve academic achievement of students in areas of mathematics and science by encouraging State and local partnerships to improve and upgrade the stature of math and science teacher education by establishing comprehensive recruitment, training and advising systems for math and science teachers.

Funding Status: Colorado will receive funding through 2016-17. View RFP announcements.

  • LEAs may use Title II, Part A funds to develop and provide professional development and other comprehensive systems of support for teachers, principals, or other school leaders to promote high quality instruction and instructional leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects, including computer science.

Title II Part D Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) (Unfunded since 2010)

Purpose: The goal of EETT was to increase student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. Title II Part D received its last appropriation in 2010 and the program was officially eliminated with the passage of ESSA.

Funding Status: Program was previously defunded, but REAP eligible LEAs can still REAP-Flex funds into this program through 2016-17.
