ESEA Virtual Academy

Image result for Children School


The ESEA Program team within the Federal Programs Unit  will offer a series of virtual work sessions beginning in the spring of 2017 covering topics related to the requirements and the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The virtual work sessions are intended to provide information to the field regarding updates that may impact the LEA's administration of programs funded under the ESSA, as well as provide meaningful time for discussion and feedback with and between the LEAs. Each session will be presented through the lens of needs specific to the consolidated application and monitoring process, as well as best practices for implementation resulting in equitable opportunities and effective outcomes for all students. 

Intended Audience

Federal Program administrators and personnel working within ESSA programs, including school administrators. 


Materials for each virtual work session will be provided to registered participants at least one week in advance to allow for adequate time to review prior to the session. The materials will provide participants with the program requirements as outlined in statute and pertinent guidance for implementation related to the session topic. A participant survey will also be included with the session materials to provide registrants an opportunity to notify CDE staff of concerns/needs in advance, permitting CDE staff to develop a session tailored to the needs of the field.
