ESEA Regional Networking Meetings
Regional Networking Meetings
The ESEA Program team within the Federal Programs Unit will offer a series of virtual work sessions covering topics related to the requirements and the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), as well as flexibilities afforded under ESSA that can help support current local needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual work sessions are intended to provide updates that may impact the Local Education Agency’s (LEA) administration of programs funded under the ESSA, as well as provide time and opportunity for discussion and networking between LEAs.
