Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Assistance

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. To assist states in the implementation of ESSA, CSAI has created three documents, highlighting key ESSA requirements related to standards, assessment, and accountability, specifically those requirements for which CSAI can provide support to states. An ESSA implementation timeline is also included in each document.
