| ACTE Public Policy Awards Nominations Open! »
This week, the final conference report on the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a bill to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was made available to the public. A summary of the bill is available here. As we previously reported, a conference committee comprised of members of the House and Senate voted overwhelmingly to approve the bill earlier this month. The House is expected to vote on final passage of the bill later this week, followed by the Senate next week.
ESSA includes some key CTE provisions to promote activities that integrate academic and CTE content in the classroom—including specialized professional development opportunities, expanded college and career guidance programs, improved availability of CTE student performance information, and recognition of CTE as a core component of a well-rounded education. For these reasons and more, ACTE has endorsed ESSA. Our statement of support is available here.
Check back on the CTE Policy Watch Blog for additional analysis and updates. Also, please take a few minutes to contact your Members of Congress and ask them to vote Yes on ESSA!
