THE EVERY STUDENT
SUCCEEDS ACT (ESSA)

A thorough guide to help you understand
ESSA grants that support education.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. It reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, and succeeds the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) of 2002. The law covers the full breadth of K-12 education.

What does ESSA mean for schools and districts?

ESSA governs most federal funding streams that support education, which includes both noncompetitive grants and competitive grants.

The ESSA is important because of some changes that affect how and when these grants will be made available, and the ways that they may be used to support your work in providing a high quality education for all students.
