Event Description

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Changes and Impact on Special Education Policy

Across the districts in the US, it wasn’t uncommon for years to see special education students lacking adequate resources. Either they would go for months without textbooks, or have decade old ones. Technology was scarce, and there were several cognitive delays in taking standardized tests, regardless of strong individualized education program (IEP) recommendations. As a part of Obama Government’s ‘No Child Left Behind’ school improvement program, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was launched in December 2015, and it offers states and districts to move beyond top-down, test-and-sanction based reforms which failed to help kids. There has been a sea of change in the education policy since.

The session by expert speakers Lori Kirsch-Goodwin, Esq. and Hope N. Kirsch, Esq. will explain what you need to know about ESSA as an educator. You’ll also get an overview of ESSA, its history and how it differs from the prior law. The webinar will also provide ESSA priorities, the legal obligations of schools and also explain how you can transition to and implement ESSA.

You will know how ESSA impacts students, classrooms, schools and communities and understand how you can develop ESSA plans. Various resources will be provided at the end of the session which can be your take-away.
