Overview

The Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant (SSAE) consolidates multiple federal grants into one program.

What can be funded: SSAE has three categories of allowable activities:

  • Well-rounded educational opportunities
  • Safe and healthy students
  • Effective use of technology

Distribution of funds: Local Education Agencies will receive SSAE funds by formula based on their Title I allocation. Allocations to Local Education Agencies must be a minimum of $10,000.

Schools to be served: Districts must submit applications to the State describing how funds will serve schools that:

  • are among those with the greatest needs,
  • have the highest numbers of students from low-income families,
  • are identified for comprehensive support and improvement,
  • are implementing targeted support and improvement plans, or
  • are identified as a persistently dangerous public school.

Well-Rounded Education

If a district receives more than $30,000 in SSAE funds, at least 20% must be spent on activities that support student access to well-rounded educational opportunities.

Examples: Activities to support well-rounded educational opportunities include:

  • Science, technology, engineering and mathematics
  • Music and arts
  • Foreign language instruction
  • Accelerated learning programs (AP®, IB)
  • High school redesign (dual/concurrent enrollment, early college high schools)
  • American history, civics, economics, geography, social studies or government education
  • College and career counseling
  • Environmental education
