Regional Network Meetings
The Unit of Federal Programs and Supports offers a series of virtual and in-person work sessions covering topics related to the requirements and the implementation of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), as well as Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding.
