December Issue Brief: Evidence-Based School Improvement

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state and district leaders to consider the evidence behind school improvement practices before adopting or implementing them. The evidence-based provisions of ESSA are intended to support school improvement and result in better student outcomes. Guidance encourages state and district leaders to consider multiple tiers of evidence and examine the strength of evidence available when making decisions.

In this month’s issue brief, Core Education has assembled information about the evidence-based provisions of ESSA, resources for determining the evidence basis for specific interventions, and ideas on ways to integrate tests of promising practice within the normal school schedule.
