Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA):  What goes into effect in 2017-18?
The 2017-18 school year will serve as a year of transition to our new accountability, reporting, school improvement and recognition system under ESSA. Some components of ESSA take effect this coming school year, while much of the data reporting, school improvement and accountability requirements are not in place until 2018-19. This e-module provides school districts and educators an overview of ESSA requirements going into effect this school year.

Using the New ESSA Progress Indicator to Inform Instruction
Minnesota’s ESSA Accountability System includes an indicator of student progress that measures whether students are improving in math and reading from year to year. This indicator is based on student progress over time on the four achievement levels. This short video provides an overview of this new school accountability measure and how the achievement level descriptors can be used to inform classroom instruction.
