The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015, and represents good news for our nation’s schools. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students.
The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) offers technical assistance to address grantee needs across multiple ESEA programs. OESE offices and technical assistance partners provide one-on-one individualized support for States to problem solve specific State needs; peer-to-peer interactions that provide opportunities for collaboration with peer States, communities of practice, and interstate working groups around relevant issues and challenges; and build awareness of information and resources in response to needs identified in the field through ongoing guidance and technical support to all States. This technical assistance page provides information for State grantees and links to useful guidance, webinars, tools and resources, and technical assistance partners to support implementation of ESEA programs.
