Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Overview

  • The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is a law that outlines how states and school districts may use Federal funds to support schools. New York State's ESSA plan was approved by the U.S. Department of Education in January 2018. The plan focuses on equity in education for all students and expands measures for school accountability and student success. At its core, ESSA is about creating a set of strategies to promote educational equity by providing funding to school districts to ensure that every child succeeds. 

    The Hendrick Hudson School District receives and administers ESSA grant funding for the following federal grants:

    The Title Grants (I, II, III, IV) are supervised through the Office of Curriculum & Instruction (Dr. Margaret Ruller).  The McKinney Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth Grant is supervised through the Office of Pupil Personnel (Mrs. Lisa Schuchman).
