  • ESSA Accountability Designations
    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the main federal law for K-12 public education, aims to ensure all children get a quality education. The law requires that states hold public schools accountable for how students achieve. ESSA does give states flexibility—their accountability systems can measure much more than just test scores. 

    The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has established a set of indicators to measure school performance. NYSED developed these indicators with the input of thousands of people statewide—parents, educators, and experts. The indicators include:

    • student academic achievement;
    • student growth and school progress;
    • progress of English language learners;
    • chronic absenteeism; and
    • for high schools, graduation rates and preparing students for college, career and civic engagement.
