Every Student Succeeds Act

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. ESSA reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. The Act contemplates the need for time to transition to full implementation and requires that states develop new state education plans.

ESSA creates an important opportunity for DC to leverage and expand upon its reform efforts.  We look forward to continuing to partner with stakeholders to develop a new state education plan and ensure a smooth transition to full implementation of ESSA.

This webpage provides key information about the transition process, the requirements of the Act, and upcoming engagement opportunities related to the development of the new state education plan.
