Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a local educational agency (LEA) may receive a Title I subgrant if it has submitted a district plan (hereafter referred to as the LEA Title I Plan) to the State educational agency (SEA) for approval by the SEA. The LEA Title I plan must be developed with timely and meaningful consultation with teachers, principals, other school leaders, paraprofessionals, specialized instructional support personnel, charter school leaders (in a local educational agency that has charter schools), administrators, other appropriate school personnel, and parents. As appropriate, the plan should include a description of how the LEA Title I Plan is coordinated with other programs under this Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the Head Start Act, the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, and other Acts as appropriate. In addition, the LEA Title I Plan may be submitted to the SEA as part of a consolidated application.

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, the requirements for LEA Title I Plans under the ESSA will be addressed through the web-based grants management system, the Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP). Some requirements will be addressed in the Planning Tool and others will be addressed in the Funding Application for Title I, Part A. Remember, one goal of utilizing CCIP is to consolidate the planning and application process in order to reduce duplication of information across the state.
