Superintendents' ESSA Webinar Series

The Connecticut State Department of Education will host a series of live informative webinars dedicated to providing updates regarding the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 and replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Sessions are designed for Superintendents and Central Office Leaders to further their understanding of ESSA.
