Overview

Brief Program Summary: The Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA, passed in 2015 to ensure that states provide all children with equal access to a high-quality public education. States must hold schools accountable for student outcomes and identify schools to receive improvement services if their students, including historically underserved groups, struggle to succeed. Nearly half of the schools in Indiana graded for the performance of students with disabilities received grades from the State in 2018, and nearly one-third received that grade for the performance of Black students. The School of Education at IUPUI is preparing to help get those schools up to standards, receiving a grant for $498,308 from the Indiana Department of Education to provide cultural competency training and support for more than 300 schools across the state.
