Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December 2015. It reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Newly authorized under subpart 1 of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA is the SSAE program. The SSAE program is intended to improve students' academic achievement by increasing the capacity of State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and local communities to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education; safe and healthy students; and the effective use of technology to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.
The Title IV, Part A SSAE program is administered through Utah Grants. Applications for the new funding period will be available in Utah Grants in the fall of 2020.
The Title IV, Part A SSAE program requires financial reporting in the following three areas: safe and healthy, well rounded, and effective use of technology. To ensure accurate and timely reporting, the linked reimbursement request form will be required for all reimbursement requests submitted in Utah Grants.
