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 the director of this new program, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve all Florida school districts and educational agencies. Starting something new isn’t always easy, but the challenges of year one will lead to many future achievements. I am inspired by the tenacity of the districts who have tackled the unknown with fresh innovative approaches that truly address the program objectives. Through Title IV-Part A, we will collectively improve academic and developmental outcomes by ensuring that all students have access to effective instructional and behavioral practices. We are on this heroic journey blazing a new trail together.

The Department 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 our federal allocation.

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

Michelle L. Gaines, Director
