TITLE IV - STUDENT SUPPORT AND ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT
The ESEA includes a number of provisions that promote equitable access to educational opportunity, including holding all students to high academic standards, ensuring meaningful action is taken to improve the lowest-performing schools and schools with underperforming student groups and providing more children with access to high-quality preschool.
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:
- Provide students with access to a well-rounded education,
- Improve safe and healthy school conditions for student learning, and
- Improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students. (ESEA section 4101).
