The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the most recent version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)—the nation’s major federal law related to public education in grades pre-kindergarten through high school. Passed in December 2015, ESSA continues and greatly expands upon the previous requirement that both SEAs (states) and LEAs (local districts) receiving Title I, Part A funds prepare and widely disseminate an annual report card (ESEA section 1111(h)(1) and (h)(2)).
State and local report cards must include information about public schools related to a wide variety of student and school performance metrics, accountability, per-pupil expenditures, and educator qualifications, as well as any other information that the SEA or LEA deems relevant.
The Platte County School District #1 report card is available in two locations. First, it is available under the Quick Links section at the right hand of most of our webpages. Second, it is always available under the “Curriculum” dropdown menu at the top of te page.
We invite your thoughts and feedback on other information we can provide to best educate you, our stakeholders. This feedback is critical in our continuous improvement process as we continue to strive to “Reach the PEAK.”
