Major Provisions of ESSA related to the Education of English Learners

The purpose of this document is to describe the major provisions of the recently enacted Every Student
Succeeds Act (ESSA) as they affect the education of English learners (ELs), focusing in particular on
issues that state educational agencies (SEAs) should be aware of as they begin implementation of the
new statute. The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) commissioned the Penn Hill Group to
develop this resource that should be beneficial to states as they begin implementation of ESSA. We begin
first with an overview of the new Act and then provide a detailed analysis of the provisions most relevant
to services for ELs.
