ESSA Final Regulations on Accountability, State Plans, and Data Reporting
Hot off the press! The U.S. Department of Education has just released final regulations to implement the accountability, data reporting, and state plan provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
These final regulations reflect much of the input the Department received from parents, teachers, school leaders, district and state officials, members of Congress, civil rights organizations, and others. One key change to note is the extended timeline for identification of schools for support and improvement.
