Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

​On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama. This reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, formerly known as No Child Left Behind, provides a long-term, stable federal policy that gives states additional flexibility and encourages states, local school systems, and schools to innovate while at the same time holding all accountable for results. The Maryland State Department of Education is working with the ESSA Stakeholder Committee to participate in the review of the new law and development of Maryland's ESSA Plan.
