If you need assistance, please contact Gayla Braziel or Sheree Mcdonald - Federal Programs. 

LEAs that receive Title I, Part A funds are required to place their district’s Annual Report Card and each of their school’s Annual Report Card on their websites.  Below is a copy of ESEA Section 1111(h)(2) with the specifics of this requirement. 




(A) PREPARATION AND DISSEMINATION.—A local educational agency that receives assistance under this part [Title I, Part A] shall prepare and disseminate an annual local educational agency report card that includes information on such agency as a whole and each school served by the agency.

(B) IMPLEMENTATION—Each local educational agency report card shall be:

(i) concise;

(ii) presented in an understandable and uniform format, and to the extent practicable, in a language that parents can understand; and

(iii) accessible to the public, which shall include—

(I) placing such report card on the website of the local educational agency; and

(II) in any case in which a local educational agency does not operate a website, providing the information to the public in another manner determined by the local educational agency.


In Georgia, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, LEA, and School Annual Report Cards and posts them on their website (https://gosa.georgia.gov).  However, to assist LEAs in meeting this ESEA requirement under Title I, GOSA has graciously put together a specific URL link for each LEA.  Each LEA’s URL link includes the LEA report card and the report card of each School within that LEA.  Therefore, if the LEA posts this URL link on their district’s website and on each school’s website, they will have met this requirement.  Title I would like to thank Jackie Lundberg and Jordan Dasher of GOSA for developing these URLs.
