Project: Year 7 2018–2019

Georgia ESSA Support

As part of "Educating Georgia's Future," the Georgia Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan, the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is focusing on building the knowledge and skills of its staff to support implementation of strategies by local education agencies (LEAs). The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) is providing technical assistance, facilitation, and training to support this process.

Technical Assistance Approach

The SECC is serving as a thought partner in assisting GaDOE in identifying strategies to support effective use of the state comprehensive needs assessment and equitable practices with LEAs to improve implementation of ESSA plans.

Impact
  • Increased knowledge and skills in GaDOE to support implementation of ESSA plans in districts and schools 
  • Increased organizational structures and processes in GaDOE to identify gaps in services to LEAs to support equitable practices and continuous improvement processes
