Event Description

Understand the Legal Components of ESSA and Ensure Your Educational Institution’s Compliance

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) amended Section 8302 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Understanding the ESSA can be daunting. Join this session with two nationally recognized special education attorneys Lori Kirsch-Goodwin, Esq. and Hope N. Kirsch, Esq., who will provide a comprehensive overview of ESSA. In this session, you will gain an understanding of how the ESSA changed the ESEA, the purpose and function of the ESSA, and its different sections. You will learn the established procedures and criteria under which every state’s educational agency was to submit a consolidated state plan designed to simplify the application requirements and reduce the burden for the state educational agencies (SEAs).

You will learn the components that each state educational agency was required to include in its consolidated state plan and how states engaged stakeholders in the process. This session will provide a comprehensive overview of the descriptions, information, assurances, and other material that was required for inclusion in a consolidated state plan, and how states were required to engage stakeholders in the development of their plans.
