In December of 2015, President Obama signed into law the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The title of the reauthorized legislation, which replaces the No Child Left Behind Act, is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This legislation will help to improve outcomes for all students. ESSA requires that states develop plans that address standards, assessments, school and district accountability, and special help for struggling schools.
