The Every Student Succeeds Act finally becomes a classroom reality this fall, putting more authority—and on-the-ground responsibility—in the hands of district leaders, school-level educators, and state policymakers.
Education Week offers a big-picture look at how prepared states, districts, and schools are to meet the challenges of the new federal K-12 law and what they can do to assure a smooth rollout in the 2018-19 school year. In this virtual event, Education Week journalists and guests will staff online “discussion” booths on a host of topics, including details of the law itself; its impact on teacher policy; testing and assessments; how schools and districts are meeting the law’s demands for data and transparency; what ESSA means for minority students, English-learners, and those with disabilities; and market opportunities and challenges for the business sector as educators move to meet ESSA’s requirements.
Education Week journalists and guests provide practical takeaways on the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Education Week can provide 1 hour of Professional Development credit for online summits if the educator attends live. A Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you shortly after the summit has ended. On demand viewing of a summit cannot be used for credit. As with all professional development hours delivered, Education Week recommends each educator verify ahead of the online summit that the content will qualify for professional development in your school, district, county, or state with your supervisor, human resources professional, and/or principal or superintendent’s office.
