                                               ESSA & TEA's Strategic Priorities

    The State & Federal Programs team within the Accountability, Assessment, and Compliance Department is committed to the principle that every student succeeds! We are here to add value to the basic educational program through supporting campus and departmental staff with their delivery of various instructional programs. We believe in building student capacity so students can realize and maximize their learning potential.

    On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) became law.  ESSA replaces its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001.  The new law increases flexibility and decision-making authority afforded states, encourages states and schools to be innovative, and holds states accountable for results.  The primary focus of this legislation over the past 50 years has been to support our most at-risk students and ensure they receive an adequate level of education
