Meet or Exceed High Academic State Standards
The Association is a membership organization made up of State ESEA Program Administrators, and their staff from each of the states and territories, charged with managing their state federal education program. They ensure compliance with federal regulations, but more importantly work to see that all children — especially those living in economically disadvantaged conditions — have the opportunity to receive a high quality education.
Membership in the Association
The Association provides a range of information and professional development services for its members.
Membership in the Association is open to any individual state department of education staff who are involved in managing their state’s federal education programs. Federal programs are required to coordinate and collaborate to maximize effectiveness and impact on achievement, and the Association is dedicated to improving and implementing these federal education programs so that more children reach their academic potential.

• Participation in semi-annual membership meetings with the Office of State Support at the U.S. Department of Education
