 Title IV, Part A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE)

Authorized in December 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) introduced a new block formula grant under Title IV, Part A with a wide range of allowable uses. Title IV, Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) grants are intended to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of States, LEAs, schools, and local communities to:

  1. provide all students with access to a well-rounded education,
  2. improve school conditions for student learning, and
  3. improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students. (ESEA section 41​01).

Current plans are for the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to award grant funds under the new SSAE program, through formula, to eligible school districts in Georgia beginning in the 2017-2018 school year (July 2017).  The estimated Title IV, Part A allocation for Georgia for the 2017-2018 school year is $17,137,609, pending federal budget approval.
