The Maine Department of Education (DOE) is responsible for the oversight and monitoring of programs and activities carried out under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The Maine DOE has adopted a consolidated approach to the ESEA federal funding application, providing ongoing regional support, and monitoring local educational agencies (LEAs), both to ensure compliance with federal laws and to support the effective implementation of local programs. The following programs are included within Maine DOE's consolidated ESEA program application and monitoring systems: Title I, Part A; Titel I, Part D; Title II, Part A; Title III, Part A; Title IV, Part A, and Title V.
The mission of the ESEA Federal Programs Team is to ensure that ESEA Federal Programs in Maine provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education and close educational achievement gaps.
The ESSA Advisory Committee advises the Maine DOE is carrying out its responsibilities under Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. It operates to identify issues across regions of the state and facilitate two-way communication between Maine DOE and the preK-12 education community throughout Maine.
