The ESSA Opportunity

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides unprecedented flexibility for states and districts. It also provides a though-provoking definition of professional learning — and research from the Frontline Research & Learning Institute shows that most PD still has a lot of room for growth to meet these criteria.

Where will you focus your planning and preparation for implementation of ESSA? One place to start is with a holistic system for supporting educator growth.

ESSA defines this type of system as a human capital management solution — a somewhat newer term for K-12, but one supporting the entire educator journey: from recruiting, hiring and onboarding, to feedback-driven evaluations, to targeted professional learning, leading to higher employee engagement and retention.

With the Frontline Insights Platform, districts can be prepared with a flexible system that allows you to support the entire educator journey in your school system.
