The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law December 10, 2015 replacing No Child Left Behind and the waiver system. ESSA is the national education law that reinforces the longstanding commitment to ensuring equal opportunity for all students. ESSA provides New Mexico with a long-term stability that holds states, local school systems and schools accountable for results while encouraging them to be innovative in their work.
