“Times, they are a-Changing” sums up the landscape as we move to full implementation in school year 2017-2018. After fourteen years of operating under ‘No Child Left Behind,’ we finally (!) have a new reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
As the underlying purpose for ESEA remains the same, to support schools with high poverty populations, this new version ~ Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) ~ offers the opportunity to build on our previous work and create schools that serve all of our students well.
This year’s MEGA Conference will focus on transitions to the new requirements on the horizon.
