The Educator & School Excellence unit is responsible for managing the ESEA Consolidated Grant (Title I-A, Title I-D, Title II-A, Title IV-A and Title V-B). Part of that responsibility is allocating the funds to the Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) of Arizona. Below you will find information and resources regarding that allocation process.
During the legislative session of 2022 the legislature repealed A.R.S. 15-952 as part of the K-12 Budget Reconciliation Bill that was signed by Governor Doug Ducey. Due to this repeal an LEA will no longer be required to submit an Affirmation of Teacher Evaluations by February 1st to the Educator and School Excellence Unit. The repeal of 15-592 though does not remove the evaluation requirements of the LEA for certificated teachers as required under A.R.S. 15-537.
