Prioritizing School Integration in ESSA State Implementation Plans. Issue Brief No. 6
Hilton, Michael
National Coalition on School Diversity
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the latest reauthorization of the country's premier K-12 education law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Under ESSA state education agencies (SEAs), along with local education agencies (LEAs) and the communities they serve assume significant new responsibilities, ranging from the formulation of state accountability systems to determining interventions in persistently low-performing schools. ESSA also includes the requirement that state and local education agencies engage in "timely and meaningful consultation" with a variety of stakeholders while developing many aspects of Title I plans and school accountability systems. This issue brief summarizes opportunities for supporters of school diversity to engage in the ESSA implementation process at the state and local level to maximize the potential school integration impact of the new law. Sample letters to state and local education agencies are appended.
