Every Student Succeeds Act Webinar TODAY!

On December 10, 2015, the President signed into law the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA), amending the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA).  The Department of Education is now in the process of helping States and districts transition to and implement the law.  On February 4, 2015, the Department published a notice of intent to engage in negotiated rulemaking to:

  • update existing assessment regulations to reflect changes to section 1111(b)(2) of ESEA, and
  • to prepare proposed regulations related to the requirement under Section 1118(b) of ESEA, that title I, part A funds be used to supplement, and not supplant, non-Federal funds.

To help our stakeholders understand and be involved in this process, the Department is hosting a webinar, including a brief Q&A, on Wednesday, February 17, 2016, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Eastern time, to provide an overview of the rulemaking process, including negotiated rulemaking. Space is limited and will be provided on a first come, first served basis.  For this reason, we ask that groups have a single representative join.  For those who cannot attend, the webinar will be posted afterwards on http://www.ed.gov/essa
