The Every Student Succeeds Act at a glance, including Grandview results. What will change with ESSA? The key change is that struggling schools will receive more support. • What stays the same? As the current system does, ESSA requires students to take state assessments in grades 3-8, and again in 10th grade. It also requires states to use challenging academic content standards. • How does ESSA close gaps? Washington’s ESSA Plan outlines initiatives to attract and retain effective educators. Additionally, more schools will be identified for support who have large gaps in student performance between student groups. With identification comes targeted funding and other supports to help reduce and eventually eliminate those gaps. • Grandview schools identified for support for 2018-2019. Using the ESSA index score, the lowest performing 5% of schools are identified as comprehensive support schools. Schools will be identified for targeted support using the same threshold for specific student groups. Click here for more information on ESSA in English and Spanish.
