NCUEA's Role in ESSA Implementation

NCUEA is helping NEA affiliates lead on sound implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA is our opportunity to ensure success for each and every student—no matter their ZIP code.

We’re driving the creation of local ESSA teams, where educators, parents, elected officials and other key stakeholders are active in policy-making decisions that will make this opportunity a reality. In districts across the country, we’re demanding assessment audits that will reduce the amount of high-stakes testing, and give our students more time to learn. With our advocacy of opportunity dashboard indicators and community schools, we’re organizing for the schools our students deserve.
