Educate Yourself on ESSA

The Every Student Succeeds Act has finally arrived provided educators some pleasure as we do not worry about the door hitting the No Child Left Behind Act on the way out.

ESSA will be in full effect for the 2017-2018 school year with an estimated 15 million dollars in grant money available.  That amount will raise slightly each year before breaking 16 million in 2020.  The National Conference of State Legislatures provides a great summary of the act, funding, goals, and purpose.

Click here to navigate to Education Week as they share with their subscribers inside scoop to how states, and districts will share more power under the ESSA Act and how your school can prepare to meet the new goals that have been set to receive maximum funding!
