Local Educational Agency (LEA) Plan
The NCLB Act of 2001 requires the development of an LEA Plan for the receipt of federal funding. The federal law embodies specific descriptions and assurances as outlined in the provisions included in NCLB. The LEA Plan describes the actions LEAs will take to ensure that they meet established program requirements, including coordination of services, needs assessments, consultations, services to homeless students, and others, as required. The LEA Plan also describes the educational services for all students and can be used to guide implementation of federal and state-funded programs, the allocation of resources, and reporting requirements. In addition, the Plan serves as a model for each school's individual Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
The LEA Plan serves as a summary of all existing state and federal programs and establishes a focus for raising the academic performance of all student groups. Specific goals for improvements in instruction, including identified under-performing student groups, are delineated in this Plan. Descriptions of services for students are required and serve as a model for school site plans to justify expenditures that supplement the educational program.
The development of the LEA Plan involves a continuous cycle of assessment, parental and community involvement, planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.
