ESSA- Every Student Succeeds Act

Like the No Child Left Behind Act, ESSA is a re-authorization of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which established the federal government's expanded role in public education. The Every Student Succeeds Act passed both chambers of Congress with bipartisan support.

ESSA requires states to use other indicators of student achievement and school quality. These include student and educator engagement, school climate, access to and completion of advanced coursework, and post-secondary readiness. Other possibilities include other measures that can be replicated statewide.

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.
