About Every Student Succeeds Act
On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The U.S. Department of Education maintains a page explaining ESSA, and the text of the law is available online.
All states are required to submit a state plan to the U.S. Department of Education for the 2018-2019 school year. Alaska's approved plan in its entirety is available on the Department of Education & Early Development's website.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is committed to continuing open communication with educators, schools, stakeholders, and the general public throughout the process of developing the District's Plan. There are various opportunities to provide input and ideas, and we are committed to working with individuals from many different roles and perspectives.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District hosts meetings for stakeholders through its ESEA programs and one at-large stakeholder meeting held annually in the Spring. For more information, visit the Stakeholder Outreach and Tribal Consultation pages.
