On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act, which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (P.L. 114-95) for the first time in 14 years. The new law is the product of months of congressional negotiations and stakeholder input, and places an unprecedented emphasis on the importance of career and technical education for all students.
The Department of Education (ED) is now working through the next steps to implement the new law, which is scheduled to be fully completed by the fall of 2017. ED has consulted with relevant stakeholder groups on its regulatory process for specific topics pursuant to its obligations under ESSA, and has issued several Dear Colleague letters and other forms of guidance regarding upcoming rulemaking activities. ACTE has provided feedback to these notifications on behalf of its members, and will continue to play an active role in ensuring the implementation process reflects the needs of CTE students and professionals.
Below are resources, tools and communications that may be helpful in ESSA implementation. This post will be updated with additional materials as they become available, so please check back often!
