Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

The final regulations of the Every Student Succeeds Act were released November 2016. There have been substantial revisions made between the draft regulations and the final regulations.  The National Association of School Psychologists is currently working on a summary of the changes, but have emphasized the importance of SISPs (Specialized Instructional Support Personnel including school psychologists) throughout the document.  Here is a copy of the link to the final regulations, all 383 pages! http://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essaaccountstplans1129.pdf  As Vermont continues to move forward with the implementation of ESSA, we need to be sure that we are communicating the value of school psychologists to key stakeholders.  I will continue to provide you with resources as they are developed. Happy reading.
