A comprehensive needs assessment aligned with the allowable activities is required if the district or consortia allocation is over $30,000. The comprehensive needs assessment must include, at a minimum, a focus on the three content areas identified above. Additional recommendations about conducting a needs assessment are located in the "Implementing Effective SSAE Program Activities" section which starts on page 15 of the Non-Regulatory Guidance document and the Needs Assessment Guidebook from State Support Network.  The Department of Education also released a Title IV-A LEA Needs Assessment Tool that was developed with stakeholder feedback, along with a technical assistance webinar to support implementation.
