 Sign up to MDE's ESSA mailing list to receive email updates

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), reauthorizing the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and replacing the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the 2001 reauthorization of ESEA.

The Michigan Department of Education submitted the state’s final ESSA Plan to the U.S. Department of Education (USED) on April 17, 2017. The plan, signed by both State Superintendent Brian Whiston and Governor Rick Snyder, represents a more whole-child, well-rounded education for Michigan children.
