State-By-State Resources

ESSA Implementation in Your State

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) returns decision making for our nation’s education back where it belongs — in the hands of local educators, families, and communities — while keeping the focus on students most in need.

ESSA will help to ensure that all students have the resources and support they need regardless of ZIP code.
ESSA departs from the 14-year reign of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) by delivering the time and flexibility needed by schools, families, communities, and educators to do what works for students.

ESSA Timeline: All ESSA provisions are scheduled to go into effect by the 2017-2018 school year, so now is the time for educators to raise their voices and impact decisions. Click on the state below to find out how your state and local representatives are preparing now to deliver on the promise of ESSA.
