Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

Important changes are coming to Minnesota's education system, and you are invited to share your opinions on the direction it takes. Last December, the federal Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law, replacing outdated No Child Left Behind. The new law includes protections for vulnerable students, and creates tools and opportunities for parents, communities and other advocates to support equity for all students and accountability for schools.
See how your voice can be heard in the direction it takes by reading this letter from Dr. Brenda Cassellius, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Education.
