From No Child Left Behind to the Every Student Succeeds Act

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act which was passed by Congress in 2001.

Information from the Iowa Department of Education

ESSA maintains a focus on transparency and accountability while returning more authority to states and local school districts to set goals and create systems of support that will improve student learning. Under ESSA, Iowa and other states must develop state plans that address academic standards, assessments, school and district accountability, funding, and support for struggling schools.
