The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) is charged with directing, coordinating, and recommending policy for programs designed to:
- Assist State and local educational agencies to improve the achievement of preschool, elementary, and secondary school students.
- Help ensure equal access to services leading to such improvement for all children, particularly children with high needs or otherwise in need of special assistance and support.
- Foster educational improvement at the State and local levels.
- Provide financial assistance to local educational agencies whose local revenues are affected by Federal activities.
To accomplish these goals, OESE administers more than 70 grant programs through 9 program offices.
