The Elementary and Secondary Education Act

Reauthorization of ESEA:  Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

Smiling students

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Previously referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the newly reauthorized ESEA is being referred to as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This new law makes many changes to key programs that we administer.  States, however, will be given a transition period to work through these changes, with much of the new law going into effect in the 2017-18 school year. We will continue to review the law in depth and will keep you posted on new information as we move forward.
