State Responsibilities and Opportunities for School Improvement under the Every Student Succeeds Act

This PSA report, developed for the Council of Chief State School Officers, gathers timely information across states on their school improvement efforts under ESSA. It provides information, examples, and resources intended to be useful for state leaders and their partners in carrying out state visions for improving schools, including those identified through state accountability systems. The report is organized around seven dimensions of state responsibility under federal legislation, and it proposes actions to consider. It draws on recent state tools and documents, cross-state discussions, and a survey of state leaders, among other sources of information.
