us dept of education

The U.S. Department of Education consulted on the new Native American Language at the U.S. Department of Education(NAL@ED) Program, authorized by section 6133 of the Elementary and Secondary Act as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, at four previous tribal consultations in 2016. As the Department works to develop a Notice Inviting Applications for NAL@ED grants, a webinar will be held at two times to seek additional and more specific tribal input. You may choose to attend either webinar or submit written comments. This input will be important in designing the program.

Take a Look at The U.S. Department of Education’s “Guidance on Gender Equity in CTE”

USDOE

As part of the Administration’s United State of Women Summit, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and Office of Adult, Career, and Technical Education released a Dear Colleague Letter to make clear that all students, regardless of their sex, must have equal access to the full range of career and technical (CTE) programs offered. Ensuring that all students have access to high-quality secondary and post-secondary CTE programs is central to achieving equity required in law. Despite efforts to increase enrollment of male and female students in fields that are non-traditional for their sex, disparities persist in certain fields.

Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive

The U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) partnered together to launch Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive! – a National initiative to encourage developmental and behavioral screening for young children. This initiative encourages early childhood experts – including practitioners in early care and education, primary health care, early intervention, child welfare and mental health – to work together with children and their families. Early screenings check developmental progress and can uncover potential developmental delays. If a child’s screening result shows risk, families and providers will be in a better position to pursue more in-depth evaluation, which is the first step toward getting help for a child who might need it.

Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive! resources include:

  • A list of research-based developmental screening tools appropriate for use across a wide range of settings;
  • Guides on how to use the screeners for a variety of audiences, from early learning teachers to doctors, social workers, and families;
  • Toolkits with resources and tip sheets;
  • Guidance on finding help at the local level; and
  • A screening passport that allows families to track a child’s screening history and results.
