As states implement their Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plans, the Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) is focusing on building the knowledge and skills of agency staff to support implementation of equity strategies by local education agencies (LEAs). The SECC is providing technical assistance, facilitation, and training to support this process in the area of equitable access.
The SECC is serving as a thought partner in assisting states in identifying strategies to support effective use of equitable practices with LEAs to improve implementation of ESSA plans.
- Increased knowledge and skills in states to support implementation of ESSA plans in districts and schools
- Increased organizational structures and processes in states to identify gaps in services to LEAs to support equitable practices and continuous improvement processes
