ESSA / ESEA
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law on December 10, 2015, and represents good news for our nation’s schools. The previous version of the law, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, was enacted in 2002.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. ESSA is meant to ensure that all students have equitable access to high-quality educational resources and opportunities, as well as to close educational achievement gaps.
The Burlington County Institute of Technology is a participating local education agency (LEA) working on behalf of our students. Our Westampton and Medford Campuses receive Title I, Title II, and Title IV funding under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Title I, Part A supports programs and resources for disadvantaged students. Title I, Part A funding is designed to aid districts in closing the achievement gap through programs and resources. Title II, Part A provides resources for improving teacher and principal quality. It focuses on preparing, training and recruiting high-quality teachers and principals. Title IV is designed to promote safe and healthy schools and well-rounded educational opportunities.2021-2022 Parent Notification and Documentation
