The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law and affords states greater flexibility in customizing our plans for education. It encourages states and schools to innovate and at the same time maintain a focus on accountability, an emphasis on state and local systems of improvement, and a more balanced assessment system.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Community Engagement Tour will highlight the benefits to Alabama public school students and professionals, as well as detail how ESSA will complement Alabama’s Plan 2020.
