What is ESSA and the Consolidated Plan?

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on December 10, 2015. It is the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). ESSA will be fully operational in school year 2017-18.

The ESSA Consolidated Plan draft is the planning document that outlines how Washington will implement the law. The document is split into nine sections, based on the Titles included in the law:

  1. Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies
  2. Title I, Part C: Education of Migratory Children
  3. Title I, Part D: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk
  4. Title II, Part A: Supporting Effective Instruction
  5. Title III, Part A: English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement
  6. Title IV, Part A: Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants
  7. Title IV, Part B: 21st Century Community Learning Centers
  8. Title V, Part B, Subpart 2: Rural and Low-Income School Program
  9. Title VII, Subpart B of the McKinney Vento-Homeless Assistance Act: Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program
