Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015: What it Means for Students with Disabilities

Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015: What it Means for Students with Disabilities  Copy to Calendar

Wednesday, January 13, 2016
3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Location: Webinar

President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, P.L. 114-95) on December 10, 2015. This bill reauthorizes and amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (otherwise known as the No Child Left Behind Act). While AUCD, NDRN, and NACDD had advocated for a stronger federal role in the accountability system, the DD Act partners supported the compromise measure and believe the final bill is stronger than the outdated No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the current waivers that are in effect today in most states. Indeed, using data and new knowledge about how to most effectively teach students with disabilities, the newly reauthorized law goes farther than the original 2002 NCLB to provide assistance to these students with disabilities to successfully graduate and become college and/or career-ready.
