Moving From NCLB to ESSA: Federal Guidance and Regulations 

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)  makes significant changes to policies and practices currently mandated by No Child Left Behind.  ESSA takes effect in the 2017-2018 school year, and many states and disrricts will have to make significant changes to comply with the law. The Department of Education has resources to help states transition to ESSA.  Further, the regulatory process, which specifies how certain parts of the law must be implemented, began in January 2015. NASP is working with various federal agencies to ensure that the importance of comprehensive school psychological services is recognized in regulation, guidance documents, and technical assistance materials released by the Department of Education.
