The TASAP program provides one-time competitive grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) to procure technical assistance in preparing, adopting, or modifying, and implementing student assignment plans. The purpose is to avoid racial isolation and resegregation in the Nation’s schools, and to facilitate student diversity, within the parameters of current law.
LEAs use these grant funds to seek assistance and expertise from student assignment specialists, demographers, community relations specialists, facility and other planners, or curriculum specialists and others in comparable LEAs with relevant and successful experience, as well as specialists and consultants from academia, non-profit organizations, civil rights organizations, and the private sector.
