 Leveraging ESSA’s Evidence Provisions to Help Every Student Succeed (Advocacy)  

Leveraging ESSA Evidence ProvisionsUnder the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), school districts will have more freedom to fashion their own solutions to their most pressing challenges. While they do so, ESSA sometimes requires, allows or encourages districts to leverage evidence-based approaches. By making smart use of evidence, data and evaluation, district leaders can not only improve their students' outcomes but also increase the return on education investments, even in times of increasingly limited public funds.

During this webinar, Results for America's Evidence in Education Lab helped superintendents understand and explored the new opportunities provided by ESSA's evidence provisions.

Presenters: Jeremy Ayers, Vice President of Policy, Results for America; Dan Gordon, Senior Advisor, Results for America; Brad McMillen, Assistant Superintendent for Data, Research and Accountability, Wake County Public School System; and Matthew Lenard, Director, Data Strategy & Analytics, Wake County Public School System.

Moderator: Noelle Ellerson, Associate Executive Director, AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
