• About Every Student Succeeds Act 


    On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and 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 Dept. E.E.D. 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 has hosted several meetings for stakeholders, and will host more in the coming months. For more information, visit the Stakeholder Outreach and Tribal Consultation pages.
