ExcelinEd Playbook Details Four Core Areas of ESSA

November 16, 2016

The Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) released their first ESSA playbook designed to provide stakeholders with recommendations and resources on implementation focusing on the “four core areas of ESSA:” school accountability, interventions, using ESSA to advance state innovations, and ESSA’s weighted student funding pilot. The A-F School Accountability Playbook aims to “help states maintain the simplicity, transparency and rigor found in A-F school grading” and “outline potential pitfalls related to ESSA’s required indicators, school grading, reporting and identification of schools for interventions.”
