Entering Our 4th Year of Service!
We are pleased to announce that the EAC Region IX will enter its fourth year of service beginning October 1, 2014. The U.S. Secretary of Education has extended the project period for the current Equity Assistance Centers for up to 24 months (through FY2015 and possibly FY2016). This waiver and project extension will allow the current EAC grantees to continue providing high-quality services without interruption.
We want to thank all of you who submitted comments to the Secretary supporting the extension for the EACs. We look forward to continuing our work in Arizona, California, and Nevada, and helping you ensure that equitable education opportunities are available and accessible for all children.
