During 2016-2017 school year, Program Improvement, facilitated under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Federal legislation and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), transitioned to the newly reauthorized legislation, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA oversees the various federal funding sources, requirements and programs under Title I, Title II, and Title III, etc. ESSA prioritizes excellence and equity for students, sets high standards and contains policies that will help all students achieve success in college and future careers. ESSA also brings new state accountability requirements and relief from old sanctions imposed under NCLB. The law seeks to ensure that all children receive a high-quality education and close achievement gaps.
