Alliance for Excellent Education

The mission of the Alliance for Excellent Education is to promote high school transformation to make it possible for every child to graduate prepared for postsecondary learning and success in life.

ESSA Overview

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA provides support to high schools where one-third or more of students do not graduate. It also provides support to schools with groups of traditionally underserved students who consistently demonstrate low performance.

ESSA in States

Under ESSA, states received flexibility to chart their own path to educational success, but they must submit a plan to the U.S. Department of Education explaining how they will reach these goals. So far, sixteen states and the District of Columbia have submitted their plans with the remainder due in September 2017.
