On December 10, 2015 the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law. ESSA represents a significant shift in educational decision-making authority from the federal government back to the States. So what do States and districts need to do to prepare? When does ESSA take affect? How does ESSA change the current Title I requirements? This session will review the timelines for implementing ESSA and what happens to waivers, discuss potential transition challenges, review rank and serving changes, the new supplement not supplant standard, and more.
