This tool from NCSI and CCSSO is intended to support State Education Agencies (SEAs) and their stakeholders, as they work to develop state plans pursuant to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and ensure these plans lead to better outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities. The tool prompts deeper thinking about the ways a state’s ESSA Plan can help improve achievement and outcomes for students with disabilities by leveraging the work states already have accomplished through a State’s Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP).
