ESSA Qualification

Passed in 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) ensures that all students have access to an equitable education that fully prepares them for success in college and careers.1

ESSA incorporates the concept of "evidence-based" into legislation to ensure that the approaches and programs being implemented effectively improve educational outcomes and close achievement gaps. In order for a school or district to spend federal funds on educational products or services, ESSA requires that the product or service meet its standards.

An independent, outside research organization has determined that Exemplars materials and pedagogy is "evidence-based" and meets ESSA standards. Our math material qualifies for Tiers 3 and 4, while our science and writing material qualifies for Tier 4. 

As a result, schools and districts may use federal funds made available through ESSA to purchase Exemplars performance materials.
