ESSA and Accountability: From Policy to Practice

Date of broadcast: Tue, 10/16/18

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides states and districts with increased autonomy to create their own accountability systems and improvement plans. In light of the opportunities created by ESSA, how can administrators most effectively use recently released test scores to engage stakeholders in the planning and improvement process? What broader measures of student success are districts using to determine school and teacher performance?

Attend this web seminar to join research and policy experts from Curriculum Associates for a discussion of the new ESSA legislation and how districts can use the most recent round of released data and other key indicators to improve learning for all students.

Topics will include:

    • How has accountability measurement changed under ESSA?
    • Trends in design and implementation of accountability systems across the country
    • One district’s response to accountability system implementation

Scheduled speakers:

Peter Swerdzewski
Director of Research
Curriculum Associates

Luci Willits
Associate Vice President, Policy
Curriculum Associates

Who will benefit: Administrators interested in ESSA or assessments. Anyone may attend.
