Publication
ESSA Primer American Indian Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Students

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 includes several provisions that target the education needs of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students.

ESSA authorizes the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) to exercise greater autonomy over its schools. It authorizes the U.S. Secretary of Interior to determine the standards, assessments, and accountability system for BIE-funded schools, accounting for the unique circumstances and needs of students attending these schools.
