New teacher center Leveraging ESSA as a Catalyst

Your state's ESSA plan can be used as a catalyst to change the odds for students in your school district. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has significant influence over how district plan, giving state and district leaders greater flexibility to choose school improvement strategies and placing an increased emphasis on using evidence to inform those decisions. Just as the No Child Left Behind Act changed accountability systems in the nation's schools for more than a decade, ESSA plans will provide a roadmap for the education priorities in each state for the next 5-10 years. 

We've created a resource to help you leverage your state's proposed ESSA plan as a catalyst for student success in your school district. Simply fill out the form to the right and we'll provide a link to where you can download the analysis for your state. If you'd like to talk to us about how to implement evidence-based strategies in your district, simply check the box at the bottom of the form.
