ESSA CONSORTIUM

All schools are eligible to apply for Title IIA grant funding via an application process and some of the WCIESC districts have chosen to consort a portion of their ESSA funds so that teachers, counselors, paraprofessionals, and administrators are eligible to attend the ESSA supported sessions at no cost, while the non-consortium schools will pay the member registration fees for the sessions. Additionally, we will provide, at the school’s request, planning for a specific Workshop/Training for that school district. The district may pay for a portion of the actual cost of the workshop; the planning by the WCIESC will be done at no cost to the district. 

 

WCIESC serves as the facilitator/administrative unit for the regional ESSA Consortium.  This consortium focuses on the needs of the individual school corporations to demonstrate improvement in categories required by the ESSA Act. The ESSA Consortium is open to any West Central ESC member corporation; however, it is optional to join this Consortium. 

 

This year the designated ESSA Representatives will meet in the Spring to decide on specific types of workshops that the Consortium member Schools would like to have.
