Regional Networking Meetings

The Unit of Federal Programs and Supports offers a series of virtual and in-person work sessions covering topics related to the requirements and the implementation of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), as well as Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding. The work sessions are intended to provide updates that may impact Local Education Agencies’ (LEA) administration of programs funded under the ESSA or ESSER, as well as provide time and opportunity for discussion and networking between LEAs.

Spring Regional Network Meetings and Consolidated Application Work Sessions

The Federal Programs and Supports Unit (FPSU) invites you to our upcoming Regional Network Meetings (RNM). The purpose of these RNMs is to provide an overview of the 2024-2025 Consolidated Application for ESEA funds and to offer assistance in the creation of your LEA’s Consolidated Application.

A virtual RNM will provide an overview of the application in the new grants management system GAINS and highlight changes from the previous year's application. This Zoom meeting will focus on technical training such as how to use the application system. This virtual training will be recorded for later viewing. The in-person regional consolidated application work sessions will provide an opportunity for LEAs to workshop their application with individualized support from ESEA specialists. LEAs are welcome to attend any work session, regardless of region. Please contact Rachel Echsner with any questions.
