This year, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) took full-effect, including the addition of monitoring visits by the federal government. It is imperative, not only to satisfy the legal requirements of ESSA, but also to fulfill the spirit behind the legislation: improving student outcomes for all learners.
Your district can accomplish this by keeping the following items in mind:
- Engage parents of all learners in a clear and compliant way
- Communicate district-wide information through notices and forms in a language parents understand
- Ensure all district administrators know what documents are required to be distributed under ESSA and a timeline of when they should be sent home to families
- Provide evidence of implementation in the event of a monitoring visit
As the end of the budget year approaches, now is the time to leverage remaining un-allocated funds to address ESSA requirements in order to stay in compliance for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. One subscription to the TransACT Parent Notices ESSA collection allows an entire district to save thousands of dollars in legal and translation costs by providing district-wide access to expertly written parent notifications translated into multiple languages.
Join Dr. David Holbrook, for a webinar that explores the allowable funding sources that can be used to purchase one or more of TransACT’s Parent Notice Collections. In the webinar at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET on June 25th he will lend clarity to which funding sources are appropriate to use when purchasing specific Parent Notices collections, including:
- Section 504
- General Education

Providing parent and family engagement notices, written in plain language and in a language that can be understood by parents and families, is not just the law—it's also in the best interest of the students. Begin the 2019-20 school year with the cost-effective resource that over 7,500 districts use to help satisfy ESSA requirements.
TransACT has partnered with local and state education agencies to provide compliant parent notifications since 1993. Since then, we have worked with thousands of districts and multiple states through the transition from the No Child Left Behind Act to the Every Student Succeeds Act.
