ESSA

What is ESSA?

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is a law administered by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) that requires all states to develop educational accountability measurements for all public K-12 schools nationally. ESSA replaced the previous No Child Left Behind Act and required all 50 states and the District of Columbia to create state plans to measure individual schools’ success at preparing students for college and/or careers. In the District, that means developing an accountability system for DC public and charter schools that demonstrates how well schools are performing, using academic performance and other factors.

What information is required for all state ESSA plans?

  • Public K-12 schools must document academic achievement, as measured by state standardized test scores in English and math;
  • Elementary and middle school ratings must indicate how they measure growth, both overall and for specific groups of students;
  • High schools must publish their progress toward proficiency and four-year graduation rates.
