Understanding our Designation under the North Star Accountability System
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the most recent re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2015. ESSA requires states to develop a data-driven system for holding schools and districts accountable for providing a fair, equitable, and high-quality education to all students. Under ESSA, Minnesota established the North Star Excellence and Equity System to ensure all schools are working well for all students.
