Application Workshops

This month we will offer three application workshops for Section 7003 local educational agencies (LEAs) that have collected all of the necessary information to enter on the FY 2025 application but want guidance on entering it correctly in the IAGS.  Space will be limited, so please register for just one workshop on either 1/17, 1/18, or 1/23 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.  At the end of each workshop, most attendees will be able to confidently submit their application forward for signature.

New 7002 Videos

We’ve recording two new videos for 7002 applicants, covering the topics of eligibility, how to apply, and the payment formula.   You can find the videos by going to the Training menu on our website, or by clicking here.  Each video is best viewed in “full screen” mode and has a transcript and related links under the video playlist.
