Got questions about the Every Student Succeeds Act, the law that replaced No Child Left Behind? We have all kinds of answers in two Education Week webinars that you can view on demand.

This week, I sat down (virtually) with Peter Zamora, the director of federal relations for the Council of Chief State School Officers, and Noelle Ellerson, the associate executive director for policy and advocacy at AASA: The School Superintendents Association. They fielded questions on everything from how states and districts are working to get feedback and buy-in from the education community in developing their ESSA plans, to what sorts of measures other than test scores states might want to use in their accountability systems, to how testing might change under ESSA. You can view the webinar on demand here.

And last month, the Andrew half of Politics K-12 sat down with our editor, Mark Bomster, to field questions from readers on the law. You can view that webinar on demand here.

And of course, you can check out our cheat on the law, on the accountability regulations, and on the assessment regulations. And don’t miss Education Week’s overall guide to the law here, or in ebook form here.
