EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT (ESSA)
On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). The ESSA builds upon the critical work States and local education agencies (LEAs) have implemented over the last few years. The reauthorized law sets high standards and contains policies that will help prepare all students for success in college and future careers. It prioritizes excellence and equity and recognizes the importance of supporting great educators in our nation's schools.
The US Department of Education will be publishing ESSA regulations for State and local education agencies (LEAs) in October/November of 2016. Full text of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act: http://www.ed.gov/essa?src=rn
