Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
Thank you in advance for giving us comments and feedback on the school program we offer at TJES . The US Department of Education has passed a new bill, (ESSA) to ensure that states and local schools have more say over what happens in schools. In the past, the federal government strictly defined what schools needed to comply with in order to qualify for educational support. The "Every Student Succeeds Act " (ESSA) replaces the "No Child Left Behind Act" and restores some of the decisions back to states and local schools. . It provides flexibility for states and local schools to make their own assessment and curriculum decisions. Because of the new legislation, schools are asked to get input from parents and other stakeholders in the community. Please take a few minutes and let us know what you think is important for your child to learn while attending and how should that be measured.
