Spring 2016 Student & First Year Teachers' Workshop
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
The U.S. Congress passed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in December 2015, reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
This bipartisan legislation replaces No Child Left Behind as the federal education legislation that funds and provides the framework for elementary and secondary education in the United States.
ESSA Quick Facts
- School health and physical education are identified as part of a student's "well-rounded" education.
- School districts will be able to access funding from Title I, Title II and Title IV through their state department of education.
- Funding previously allocated to school districts through the Carol M. White Physical Education Program from the U.S. Department of Education will no longer exist. The funding available in the block grants through Title IV will replace the PEP grant funding.
- ESSA funding for Titles I, II and IV will begin to flow to states on July 1, 2016. The regulatory and implementation process for accessing funding will be developed throughout the first half of 2016 by the U.S. Department of Education and Congress. SHAPE America will keep members updated as this process progresses.
