    President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into law in December 2015, which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). ESSA reflects the civil rights tradition of ESEA, which reflects our nations longstanding commitment to equity of opportunity for all students. The new law has a clear goal of ensuring our education system prepares every child to graduate from high school ready to thrive in college and careers. Newly authorized under subpart 1 of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA, is the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program.

    The purpose of the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program is to improve students academic achievement by increasing the capacity of States, local educational agencies, 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 for all students.
