On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), was signed into law. The passage of ESSA provides a much anticipated opportunity to improve achievement outcomes for all students by providing effective programs supported with Titles I, II, III, and IV funding. The new law broadens the allowable uses of title funds and our goal is to help ensure that you understand all of the opportunities this funding affords your LEA.    

Under the ESSA, state educational agencies (SEAs) are required to collect local education agency (LEA) plans that address the requirements of the law, as well as descriptions of the activities the LEA will implement with its Title I, II, III, and IV allocations.  To meet this requirement, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has developed, with stakeholder input, a new consolidated application, which includes a set of five cross-program questions, organized around five core elements:

  • September – December: Review released performance frameworks and ESEA schools identified for comprehensive (CS) or targeted (TS) support and improvement and determine if adjustments need to be made to the Consolidated Application based on this information
  • September – December: Utilize UIP or other needs assessment process to begin planning for how to target funds to schools that have been identified for Compressive Support (CS) and Targeted Support (TS)
  • September ꟷ May: Monitor Sub-grantees
  • November ꟷ January: Collect CSPR Data from sub-grantees
  • November ꟷ February: Submit teacher qualification data through the Human Resources Snapshot.  Teachers in Title I supported programs must meet applicable Colorado licensure requirements.
  • November:  Districts with identified gaps in equitable access to experienced, in-field, and effective teachers are notified.  Begin planning strategies as applicable to include in UIP
  • December: Verify and submit annual neglected and delinquent count data to CDE
  • December 31: District Report Cards distributed and posted on the district's website
  • December 31: Last day to draw down 2017-2018 SRSA Funds
  • December ꟷ January: Collect and verify annual count data from sub-grantees
  • December – January: First Post-Award revision for Consolidated Application activities, including final allocations and accurate carryover
  • December – February: Meet with stakeholders including teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, and charter school leaders to share findings from data analysis and gain input on possible uses of funds in the subsequent school year
  • December – March: Students meeting or exceeding CDE guidance are considered for resignation
  • December ꟷ March: Initiate consultation for the upcoming school year with non-public schools within district boundaries and establish or review inter-district memorandum of understanding, if applicable See more
