Title IV Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE)


Welcome from the Director

Thank you for visiting the Title IV-Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program website.

As our second year advances, I am reflective of the inaugural Title IV-Part A (T4A) year and I'm optimistic for our bright future under the Student Support and Academic Enrichment umbrella,

The T4A team is embracing the lessons learned, and welcome new challenges that will lead to many future achievements in Florida. The team remains deeply committed to transparency and communication while relishing the opportunity to serve Florida's local educational agencies.  We are constantly inspired by the tenacity of the LEAs and their demonstration of innovative approaches that truly address the T4A program objectives. 

Through T4A, we are collectively improving academic and developmental outcomes by ensuring that all students have access to effective instructional and behavioral practices. This 2018-19 fiscal year has 100% participation from all eligible LEAs.

The Department's Bureau of Standards and Instructional Support highly encourages meaningful collaboration between districts, schools and the public/private sectors. Content and subject area integration is paramount as we maximize the effectiveness of the program through thoughtful stewardship of Florida's federal allocation.

We are deeply committed to student achievement in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Thank you to the internal and external partners for supporting Florida through T4A.

Michelle L. Gaines, Director
