English-Language-Learner Literacy Under the Every Student Succeeds Act
Part of the Inside ESSA Webinar Series
As many states experience growth in their English-language-learner populations, changes required by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act will give this group of students a higher profile and reflect their growing importance in measuring overall student achievement. That's in part because schools' accountability for the progress that English-learners make in learning the language is now integrated into Title I, the federal program under which the performance of all other students is scrutinized. But the change doesn't come without complications. Some state education agencies are still unsure how they will interpret and implement the law's mandates. Join us for a conversation with English-language-learner administrators from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., and Roseville, Minn., school districts to examine their plans for adjusting to the new federal law.
Kristina Robertson, English-learners program administrator, Roseville Area school district, Minn.
Charlotte "Nadja" Trez, executive director, English-learner services, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., school district
This webinar will be moderated by Corey Mitchell, staff writer, Education Week

Making SEL Meaningful, Measurable, and Achievable Under ESSA
As a leader in education, what non-academic factor will you be using under the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)? This webinar, featuring content provided by Committee for Children, explores how social-emotional learning (SEL) can be that factor. SEL has been shown to increase academic performance, decrease behavioral issues and suspensions, and improve graduation rates. Committee for Children (CFC) developed an evidence-based SEL curriculum used in 22 percent of all U.S. elementary and middle schools, and advocates for inclusion of SEL in primary, secondary, and career/technical education.
This live session will cover policy research about how SEL can be implemented and assessed. The chief academic officer of CORE Districts will present learnings from nine districts that have already implemented a school quality improvement index that measures growth mindset, self-efficacy, self-management, and social awareness.
Chad d'Entremont, executive director, Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy, Mass.
Tia Kim, director of programs, partnerships, and research, Committee for Children
Michelle Steagall, chief academic officer, CORE Districts, Calif.
This webinar will be moderated by Carol Wood, advocacy specialist, Committee for Children
