Start the school year with updates and guidance on federal ESEA Title Program implementation. This year there have been changes in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) and other applicable grant regulations affecting all aspects of the federal education programs. Sessions will address these and other changes as well as helping to bring new district federal programs staff up to speed on how these programs serve students.

Day one will have a full-day session, AM half-day session and PM half-day session. The full-day session will provide required Title IX Coordinators Training.* The AM half-day session will be Planning for Digital Learning in Your School. The PM half-day session will offer training for New Title I Coordinators. Days two and three will include a combination of general and concurrent sessions. Participants will have opportunities to meet with individual ODE specialists. There is no cost at either site and lunch is included all three days.

*Federal law requires that each school district have at least one person designated and trained as the Title IX Coordinator. This workshop will meet the minimum training requirement. Topics included are: Sexual Harassment, LGBTQ, Teen Pregnancy and Parenting, Athletics, and single gender class offerings.


Registration is required. Online registration closed on August 1, 2015.
