With the Every Student Succeeds Act now in full effect three years after its passage, Education Week unpacks how states and districts are using ESSA to transform and customize their education systems, in line with the federal K-12 law’s grant of greater autonomy and the guardrails it lays down for quality and accountability.
Using the law’s specifics and states’ own ESSA plans as a jumping off point, Education Week journalists and expert guests will answer questions and guide online discussion in specialized booths focusing on how the law’s implementation affects:
- School improvement and accountability;
- Data reporting and transparency;
- Testing and student assessment;
- Vulnerable groups of students, including English-learners, minorities, and those with disabilities;
- Funding and resources at the state and federal levels;
- New ways of weighing school quality and performance; and more.
Join Education Week on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, from 1 to 3 p.m. ET for a deep dive into the Every Student Succeeds Act. This Online Summit provides you a unique opportunity to directly interact with reporters and experts about implementation of the nation’s marquee K-12 law.
