The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) serves as the latest re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) which was last reauthorized in 2002 as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Since its inception, the intent of the law has been to raise achievement for low-income and otherwise disadvantaged children.

Parent and family engagement and consultation have always been a key piece of the law.   We know that gaps in educational opportunity and achievement will only be remedied when those closest to the affected students – parents, families, and communities – are active contributors, and supporters of the education process.
