Every Student Succeeds Act Consolidated State Plan Guidance

As states develop their consolidated ESSA state plans, this guidance from the U.S. Department of Education provides guidance on the components and elements each plan must address. In this guidance are sections for addressing: long-term goals; consultation and performance management; academic assessments; accountability, support, and improvement for schools; supporting excellent educators; and supporting all students. This guidance is designed to support development of a state plan that will be peer reviewed, as well as serve as guidance for peer reviewers.
