Under ESSA, states received flexibility to chart their own path to educational success, but they must submit a plan to the U.S. Department of Education explaining how they will reach these goals. To summarize the strengths—and shortcomings—for each state’s plan, the Alliance created a series of one-page quick-reference guides for anyone looking to determine how well a state’s plan will address the needs of its students.
These ESSA Equity Dashboards use a red-yellow-green light–system to rate state plans on several indicators, including long-term goals, accountability provisions, and school rating systems.
