The Every Student Succeeds Act: A Summary of Federal Policy and Implications for Maine
Fairman, Janet; Johnson, Amy; Eberle, Francis
Center for Education Policy, Applied Research, and Evaluation
Part I summarizes key topics of federal education policy articulating accountability requirements for state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs, or school districts). In that section we describe major goals of the legislation and which components are the same or changed in the federal law. The findings are grouped into nine topic areas, so that readers may more easily find information on areas of particular interest. We also provide short excerpts from key sections of the law for reference at the end of each topic section. Part II describes specific goals and changes in both the structure of federal funding programs and anticipated funding levels for selected programs. That section is organized by the numbered entitlement programs. Funding for some initiatives has been shifted from one block grant program to another and, in other areas, states will have more flexibility to choose how federal funds are spent.
