Understanding ESSA: Virginia

According to recently released survey data regarding ESSA Title IV-A spending, which was sponsored by the School Superintendents Association, the National Association of Federal Program Administrators, the Association of Educational Service Agencies, the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), Whiteboard Advisors, and the Title IV-A Coalition, “When district leaders are given a fair amount of discretion over federal funds, one of their main responses is that they want to focus the money on their students’ welfare,” 
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the main federal law for K–12 general education. It covers all students in public schools. When it was passed in 2015, ESSA replaced the controversial No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The two laws are different, but they have some things in common.

To satisfy certain requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended, the Virginia Department of Education must identify all Title I, Part A, schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The accurate reporting of Title I schools is critical when completing federal reporting requirements.......


U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released final non-regulatory guidance to support school districts’ compliance with the requirement that federal funds supplement, and do not supplant, state and local funds, under section 1118 of Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The guidance explains how ESSA changed the longstanding requirement in order to reduce administrative burden, simplify compliance, and promote effective spending.
