Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)/Federal Title Programs
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), currently authorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, is federal legislation that promotes student achievement through school and district reform. ESSA requires each state to develop and implement a system for holding all districts and schools accountable for the education of students.

Improving Student Achievement with Effective Title Programs
This workshop will focus on building strong Title I, II, III and IV programs to increase student achievement.

Focusing on the steps required for continuous improvement, this interactive training will lead to greater student achievement through strong program development. Using the five-step process, a pre-K through 12th grade continuous improvement process, participants will strengthen their leadership team and current programming. Participants will also be introduced to best practice strategies and setting priorities. By the end of the day, initial planning for the 2019-20 school year and beyond will have taken place.
