The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students. The reauthorization builds on key areas of progress in recent years, made possible by the efforts of educators, parents, students, and community members across the country.
We are conducting this stakeholder survey to provide input for our ESSA programming and budgetary planning for July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020. Your feedback as a district and/or community stakeholder is highly valued in assisting the district to identify priority areas of need. The district considers the survey findings along with various data points of student achievement and staff professional programming to develop an effective overall plan for the federal funding entitlement allocation.
