Every Student Succeeds Act

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) emphasizes the educational stability of vulnerable students, including those in foster care. Children in foster care face many educational barriers, including traumatization, high mobility, and undiagnosed behavioral and health conditions. ESSA requires new guidelines and resources to ensure improved educational outcomes for children in foster care. These provisions take effect on Dec. 10, 2016.
