ESSA will help guide and improve the educational landscape in Alabama and reflects many of our state’s educational priorities.

ESSA was a bill approved by Congress in December 2015 to grant states more flexibility for strategic, customized plans for education.

Learn more here​ and at the Governor's ESSA Taskforce site. ​

ESSA replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB). ESSA encourages states and schools to innovate, while at the same time maintaining a focus on accountability, an emphasis on state and local systems of improvement, and a more balanced assessment system.
