Every Student Succeeds Act


The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015.   It provided good news for our nation’s schools.  This bipartisan measure reauthorized the fifty-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and represents a longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students.
