Consolidated Federal Application Feedback

  • US Department of Education logo

    On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), was signed into law. ESSA reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of the United States, and provides a much anticipated opportunity to improve achievement outcomes for all students through programs supported with Titles I, II, III, and IV funding.

    Under ESSA, the Colorado Department of Education is required to collect local school district plans that address the requirements of the law, and include descriptions of the activities the local district will implement with its Title I, II, III, and IV allocations. This plan is called the Consolidated Federal Application, and is revised and renewed annually, based on needs identified in schools across our district.

    ESSA also requires that school districts involve stakeholders in the planning, development, and monitoring of those educational improvement plans. The Thompson School District develops, reviews, and revises our annual Consolidated Federal Application in partnership with teachers, principals, other school leaders, paraprofessionals, specialized instructional support personnel, charter school leaders, parents, and community partners. This review process includes an examination of identified needs, development of planned actions, decisions about funds allocation, and the evaluation of previous improvement efforts.

    Before submission of the Consolidated Federal Application, the Thompson School District must afford a reasonable opportunity for public comment on the plan and consider such comment as part of the development process.
