ESSA and Evidence
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) federal education legislation emphasizes the use of evidence-based interventions and charges state and local education agencies with identifying interventions that improve outcomes for students in preschool through 12th grade. This has been the focus of our work for decades! In this issue of Education Notes, we share examples of SRI Education’s work examining the effectiveness and impacts of programs and helping to implement effective practices. Don’t forget to share this newsletter and follow @SRI_Education on Twitter!
