Prior to seeking such waiver, the District must hold a public hearing to obtain feedback from the District community on this issue.

ACT TO APPROVE LOCAL EDUCATION AGENCY PLAN (Ms. Clark)

The approval of a Local Educational Agency Plan (LEA Plan) by the local school board is a requirement for receiving federal funding subgrants for NCLB/ESSA programs. The LEA Plan includes specific descriptions as outlined in the provisions of NCLB/ESSA and mandated by the State Board of Education. As a district in year 3 of program improvement, we are required to consult with a DAIT provider and include their recommendations in our LEA Plan.
