The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is a federal law passed in 2015 that governs the United States K-12 public education policy. ESSA is complex and touches multiple areas of public education while affecting public school policy related to four key groups:

  1. Students in poverty
  2. Migrant students
  3. Students who receive special education
  4. Those with limited English language skills

We support most areas of the Every Student Succeeds Act, including Title I topics like school improvement, parent and family engagement, migrant education, and at-risk youth; Title II efforts for teacher recruitment and training, along with supporting effective instruction in all of our workshops and online courses; Title III’s focus on English learners and immigrant students; Title IV support for charter schools and 21st-century schools; Title V help with rural schools' education and support for Title IX for homeless education among many others.
