What is ESSA?

Information on Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind on December 10, 2015, as the re authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  ESSA will be fully operational in school year 2017-18.

Who’s helping to make the transition to ESSA?

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires the State Education Agency to be the key decision maker in the development and implementation of the ESSA Consolidated Plan.  In Washington, this is OSPI, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.  ESSA also requires consultation with a number of state leadership members, district and school representatives, and professional organization representative Consolidated Plan Team.

OSPI will consult with the Consolidated Plan Team to develop and implement our state plan. The team includes representatives from state government, districts and schools, and professional organizations.
