This webinar will address how states can use resources provided by the Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA) to implement deeper learning practices in schools and school districts.

As states prepare to implement ESSA, state and local policymakers and district and school leaders can use deeper learning as the framework from which to design their plans to meet the ESSA requirements. The requirements and resources provided by three sources of funding within the law are particularly salient: Title I, Title II, and Title IV.

For example, Title I can be used to emphasize deeper learning, as that pot of funding focuses on standards, assessment, and accountability. Specifically , the law requires learning standards to measure higher-level skills—deeper learning—and provides flexibility on assessing these skills and measuring student performance. Funds can also be used in support of rigorous course work that allows students to earn postsecondary credit while still in high school.

The webinar will also share information about the use of Title I funds by the California Office to Reform Education (CORE) districts. CORE’s school quality improvement system provides educators a complete picture of schools’ academic progress by showcasing state and locally-developed data in a way that is unique and innovative.
