New Resources for PTA Members on the Every Student Succeeds Act
National PTA has compiled a fact sheet and questionnaire for PTA members to use when interacting with state and local education leaders during the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The new resource, "Start a Conversation: Questions PTA Members Should Ask about the ESSA Implementation" can be found on National PTA's ESSA webpage at pta.org/ESSA.
In addition, National PTA Government Affairs staff worked with the Council on Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and provided input on their recently released ESSA Stakeholder Engagement Guide. This guide can also be found on National PTA's ESSA webpage at pta.org/ESSA.
