Highlights --- March 17, 2016 - 
Englewood Public School  District School Board Meeting.

Someone asked the following question.
What is ESSA? The question may have arisen in response to District website tab for ESSA parents.  ESSA parents are Title I parents. The student population of EPSD is more than 70% Title I. Students who qualify for free and/or reduced lunch are Title I.

"On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into law as Public Law Number 114-95ESSA reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 “to ensure that every child achieves.”(1).."

Click on tab 6 or 7 on this page. Substitute ESSA for ESEA wherever you see it.

The switch from ESEA to ESSA is a rather quick one for those who are not following Education Reformery News.
