Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Implementation

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on December 10, 2015. It is the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). ESSA became fully operational in school year 2017–18. OSPI is in the process of implementing the law, beginning with the identification of schools for Comprehensive and Targeted supports in the Washington School Improvement Framework.

The Washington School Improvement Framework

The Washington School Improvement Framework (WSIF) is the framework for accountability in Washington state. Each school is measured on the Framework, and OSPI has identified schools for additional supports, called Comprehensive and Targeted supports.
