The Office of Safe and Healthy Students has developed a number of resources regarding the U.S. Department of Education’s recently issued “Non-Regulatory Guidance on the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grants” (the Guidance). The SSAE program is authorized under Title IV, Part A of ESSA.

The SSAE program aims to increase the capacity of State educational agencies, local educational agencies, schools, and local communities to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education; improve school conditions for student learning; and improve the effective use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.
