Title IVA

About Title IV A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE)
The Every Student Succeeds Act (2015) reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. ESSA created the Student Support and Academic Enrichment program, commonly referred to as Title IV, Part A. The program provides flexibility for LEAs to tailor investments based on identified needs. LEAs create activities aligned to one of three focus areas.

Well-rounded Education

Well-Rounded Education - Supports activities related to core academic subjects, foreign language, fine arts, health and physical education, and career and technical education.

Safe and healthy students

Safe and Healthy Students - Supports activities related to creating safe and supportive learning environments for students. Popular strategies include PBIS, family and community engagement, and mental and physical health initiatives.


Effective Use of Technology - Supports activities related to staff development in STEM subjects, the creation of blended and remote learning programs, and the use of student data to differentiate instruction.
