  • ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act):  With the new K-12 education bill in place in 2016, arts education advocates are working with their state education leaders to ensure that the arts are a part of their state’s education policies, including measured within state report cards, considered in accountability systems, and supported within well-rounded education. Under the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed regulation, the upcoming 2016-2017 school year would be a transition year for states to finalize their accountability systems to measure school performance.
