Technical Assistance Sessions

Changes to Funding and Requirements from No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

The New Jersey Department of Education will hold technical assistance sessions to provide updates on federal funding streams under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the reauthorization of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). When ESSA was passed in 2015, it replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), resulting in changes to allocation formulas, authorized uses, reporting requirements, and fiscal rules for funding streams in ESEA such as Title I, Part A, Title II, Part A, Title III, Part A, and Title IV, Part A (newly authorized). At the technical assistance sessions, the Department will discuss these changes and what they mean for school districts' spending of federal funds for the 2017-18 school year, the first year of full implementation of ESSA. The trainings will take place on the following dates and locations:
