• Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. ESSA is meant to ensure that all students have equitable access to high-quality educational resources and opportunities, as well as to close educational achievement gaps.

    To receive funding, each state must submit to the U.S. Department of Education every several years and each district then applies to the state every year.
