In 2015, Congress passed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The federal education law primarily focused on historically disadvantaged students. ESSA replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

ESSA requires that states publicly share how every school and district in the state performs on an annual report card. The goal of the report card is to provide parents and communities with information on how well their districts and schools are preparing their students for future success and to highlight where improvements are needed.

We want to hear from you on how to make the report card valuable to parents, including the content and design. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey.
