On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). ESSA replaces its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
ESSA offers districts greater flexibility for using federal funds to effectively implement comprehensive, districtwide research-based initiatives that maximize student academic outcomes, particularly for those students at risk of not meeting challenging state academic assessment standards.
ESSA renews the U.S. Department of Education’s emphasis on comprehensive needs assessments and improvement planning. The new regulations increase the district’s responsibilities for monitoring student outcomes, coordinated use of federal funds, and for offering high-quality guidance and technical assistance to schools engaged in continuous improvement planning.
Valley View ISD receives funding for the following entitlement programs within the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
Title I, Part A--Improving Basic Programs
Provides supplemental funding for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state's student performance standards. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically-based research.

Title I Part C-Migrant
The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to design and support programs that help migrant students overcome the challenges of mobility, cultural language barriers, social isolation, and other difficulties associated with a migratory lifestyle.
School districts who receive federal grant funds are required to provide equitable services for eligible PNP school children, teachers, and other educational personnel. The term “equitable services” refers to the process of providing students, teachers, staff, and families at eligible PNPs fair access to federally funded education programs and services, as appropriate. Services provided by the LEA for private school participants are designed to meet their educational needs and supplement the educational services provided by the private school. Educational services or other benefits, including materials and equipment, provided under this section, shall be secular, neutral, and non-ideological. The process depends on a “timely and meaningful consultation” between ISD officials and officials of eligible PNP Schools.*
A Private Non-Profit (PNP) school may opt to participate in applicable programs if it meets the following specifications:
Under 34 CFR 77.1, the term “nonprofit” as applied to an agency, organization, or institution means it is owned and operated by one or more corporations or associations whose net earnings do not benefit, and cannot lawfully benefit, any private shareholder or entity. If a church that operates a school meets the definition of nonprofit, the school does not need separate nonprofit status. (USDE Office of General Counsel).
Equitable services are provided to eligible Private Non-Profits Schools under the following federal ESSA Title programs:
*Please note: Detailed information regarding ESSA Federal Program participation options for the following school year will be shared at our district's annual PNP meeting that is held each spring (May). If you have questions, please contact Camilo Martinez at email@example.com 956-340-1050
