Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in New Jersey

NJDOE ESSA Resources and Webpages

The reauthorization of ESEA in December 2015 by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) expanded and clarified how federal funds received under the law may be used.  As the NJDOE plans to implement ESSA in New Jersey, it is committed to helping school districts use their federal funds for the programs and services students need most. 

After reviewing the links on this page, if you have questions about any specific funding source under ESSA, please contact the appropriate office.
