The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 (Public Law 115-31) became law on May 5, 2017. Provisions in the law made important changes in FY 2017 to the Title IV, Part A Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grant program, including, but not limited to, providing State educational agencies with the option of making competitive subgrants to eligible local educational agencies (rather than by formula).
The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS), in collaboration with the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments, is providing this webinar to address details about these changes. In this fifth webinar in the series, program staff from the U.S. Department of Education will discuss lessons learned from the first seventeen (17) SSAE Consolidated State Plans submitted to the Department for review. Presenters will include David Esquith, Director of the Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS); Ivonne Jaime, Well-Rounded Educational Opportunities Team (OSHS); and Francisco Ramirez, Effective Use of Technology Team (OSHS).
At the conclusion of the webinar, responses to participant’s questions will be provided.
Date: Thursday, August 10, 2017
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern Time
