Oregon Updates 2020-21 Guidance with ESSA Equity Considerations

August 11, 2020

In new guidance released by the Oregon Department of Education, special consideration is given to how schools can best “ensure equity and access for students” who receive services under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In the context of ESSA, the guidance addresses requirements of the federal Title I program, which provides dedicated support and resources for students in low-income schools, and how schools can meet these needs in a remote or hybrid learning model.
