 Title I, Part A Parental Involvement Compliance

As of 6/7/2016, all documents have been updated for the 2016-2017 school year

Although the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was reauthorized in December 2015 as the new federal law called Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), local educational agencies will continue to operate in the 2016-2017 school year under the plans, procedures, and requirements that were in place for the 2015-2016 school year. States will continue to implement Title I, Part A in accordance with ESEA, formerly known as No Child Left Behind, until the 2017-2018 school year when ESSA begins.

This year, in the Systemic Family Engagement Guide (The Handbook), we have provided a comparison of ESEA and ESSA, showing the changes that must be fully implemented in the 2017-2018 school year. You will find this comparison in Section 2
