Iowa Department of Education releases new school performance results, website
The Iowa Department of Education today released new online reports showing how public schools performed in a new accountability system that meets the Every Student Succeeds Act, a federal education law that replaced the No Child Left Behind Act.
“I’m thankful that the Every Student Succeeds Act puts ownership of school accountability back where it belongs: with states and local school districts,” Director Ryan Wise said. “We’ve gone from a federal accountability system that was prescriptive and punitive under No Child Left Behind to a homegrown system that focuses on helping schools find solutions that work for them.”
