The Every Student Succeeds Act
Implications for California and Equity
A Live Video Conversation with Audience Q&A
Tuesday Jan. 12, 2016 – 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
EdSource and Partners for Each and Every Child are pleased to invite you to participate in a live video conference to examine the implications of the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in California.
After more than a decade of “No Child Left Behind,” the reauthorization of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act promises to significantly alter the federal government’s role and direction in education policy.
States will play an important role under the new law in ensuring educational equity, and ensuring that schools are supported to respond to the needs of underserved, underrepresented and/or high-needs students.
California, with continued implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and redesign of an accountability system with multiple measures, is poised to have a major impact on the evolution of national discourse and practice.
But many questions remain unanswered:
- What does this mean for California’s school districts?
- How could the new law impact California’s reforms, particularly the new accountability system the state is currently developing?
- What must educators and policymakers do to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to succeed in California’s schools?
Join us for a discussion moderated by EdSource executive director Louis Freedberg with Christopher Edley, chair, Partners for Each and Every Child and other prominent California educators and experts to examine some of these questions.
We will send more details about the panel and supporting materials to inform the conversation early in the new year. But save your place now to be part of this discussion!
This 90-minute video conference is free but space is limited.
The event will be hosted via GoToWebinar. Instructions and basic system requirements to participate will be available after your registration.
