Plain white page with black text reading ESSA Implementation Planning Tool

The ESSA Implementation Planning Tool guides state teams through a reflection and planning process to develop a comprehensive strategy for implementing Consolidated State Plans under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Grounded in implementation and improvement sciences, this tool can support states in defining success for state and local implementation efforts, identifying implementation metrics and timelines, and considering revisions to state plans in the future based on new stakeholder input, research findings, and monitoring and evaluation results.
