The approval of a Local Educational Agency Plan (LEA Plan) by a local school board and State Board of Education is a requirement for receiving federal funding subgrants for No Child Left Behind (NCLB) programs. The LEA Plan includes specific descriptions and assurances as outlined in the provisions included in NCLB. In essence, LEA Plans describe the actions that school districts will take to ensure that they meet certain programmatic requirements, including student academic services designed to increase student achievement and performance, coordination of services, needs assessments, consultations, supplemental services, services to homeless students, and others as required. In addition, LEA Plans summarize assessment data, school goals and activities from the Single Plans for Student Achievement developed by the District’s schools.
