Glenda Ritz Hosts Summit to Aid Implementation of Federal Requirements

By Andrew Pillow

Indiana is trying to get an early start on implementation of federal education law.

Glenda Ritz hosted a summit today to help prepare schools for the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act. School leaders were able to see presentations from experts regarding the act.

The Every Student Succeeds Act was signed into law on December 10, 2015, and is meant to serve as a guide for the country around academic standards, achievement and all around educational improvement. It more or less replaced the less popular, No Child Left Behind Act, while shifting certain responsibilities from the federal government to the states.
