The Center for Parent Information has published a new Guide to the Every Student Succeeds Act, the new name for the Elementary and Secondary Schools Act, fka No Child Left Behind. Lotsa names- one law. the Guide provides a wealth of information about the law, including the requirement of stakeholder engagement.

The Center also has a link to a webinar on ESSA and the Assessment of Children With Disabilities. You can review the webinar here.
