Education is always evolving and innovating. Although some changes are exciting, it can also be daunting for educators to keep up with all the trends, including new laws and regulations. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the newest law that is transforming the face of education with its new procedures and accountabilities.

In this course, you will explore the goals of ESSA as well as the important changes that affect all educators and students. You will evaluate the benefits and disadvantages of ESSA and develop strategies for implementing its guidelines without upending your entire curriculum. In addition, you’ll create a plan to explain the new law to parents and families and support them through any changes.

Using the strategies from this course, you will be able to understand and incorporate any changes from ESSA that affect you, your students, and their families.
