Every Student Succeeds Act Information

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is designed to ensure that all students have a significant opportunity to have a fair and equitable high-quality education and to close educational achievement gaps. These programs provide assistance to rural- and low-income schools and services to students who are migrants, at-risk (including neglected and delinquent), homeless and English learners. In addition, the programs provide assistance to 21st Century Learning Centers and professional development for teachers and leaders.

By design, Missouri's ESSA plan outlines only a portion of the state's system for school improvement. The Missouri School Improvement Plan (MSIP) is the accountability measure of school improvement in the state, and ESSA is a component of that effort. Missouri is well-positioned to lead the nation on student success through our own homegrown systems. By taking additional time to gather feedback and establish our vision for education in Missouri, we hope to create a high-quality plan that meets the needs of all children. 

The timeline for the state ESSA plan is as follows:

·         Public Comment CLOSED (June 15 - July 15, 2017)

·         Reaction and Revision as necessary: July 15 - August 1, 2017

·         Gubernatorial Consultation: August 1 - September 1, 2017

·         Submission: September 18, 2017
