The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) applauds House passage of the final bipartisan conference report to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the "Every Student Succeeds Act" (S. 1177/ESSA).

We urge the Senate to pass the final bill and send it to the President's desk.
The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) is pleased the House-Senate conference committee on the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) has agreed upon final legislative language to replace No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
