Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Implementation

For archived ESSA Consolidated Plan Drafting and Comment information

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on December 10, 2015. It is the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). ESSA will be fully operational in school year 2017-18. OSPI is in the process of implementing the law, beginning with the identification of schools for Comprehensive and Targeted supports in the ESSA Index. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
