Equitable Services Requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act

April 6, 2017 at 1:00pm EDT

By: Tiffany Kesslar, Esq. 

Course Description:

The new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) strengthens the equitable services provisions under Title I, A, and Title VIII placing many new obligations on states and school districts. There are important changes with respect to how the proportional share of funds for equitable service must be calculated and spent under Title I, A, which topics must be discussed as part of the consultation process with private schools for all programs, the duties and responsibilities of the newly created ombudsman position, what documentation must be maintained and how these requirements must be monitored and enforced. This webinar will provide an overview of these changes.  This will also include updates from the recent ESSA fiscal guidance.
