The U.S. Department of Education released final regulations to implement the accountability, data reporting and state plan provisions for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The regulations give states more flexibility to provide a high-quality, well-rounded education, and ensure equity remains at the core of implementation.
Although the Trump administration has indicated it may rescind all recently released ESSA regulations, the regulations took effect on Jan. 1.
The regulations reinforce ESSA’s commitment to transparency and emphasize meaningful engagement and an active role for stakeholders, including specialized instructional support personnel (SISP)—the new category that includes audiologists and speech-language pathologists in schools—in implementing the new law. States must meaningfully consult and engage with these stakeholders in the design and implementation of accountability and support systems/structures.
Future issues of the Leader will include ASHA’s analysis of the impact of final ESSA rules on school-based members.
