Statement on Congressional Vote on ESSA

Tallahassee, Fla – Today, Patricia Levesque, CEO of the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) released the following statement on today’s vote.

“Although Congress has overturned the accountability regulations issued under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the ESSA statute and its requirements remain in place. ExcelinEd continues to encourage and assist states in developing strong plans that take advantage of the flexibility under ESSA to adopt innovative approaches to accountability for all students and student subgroups.

“ExcelinEd looks forward to working with Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Department of Education to ensure state policymakers have the guidance and technical support needed to complete and implement high-quality, customized ESSA plans that support all students and comply with the requirements of the law.”
