State Accountability Overview
The cornerstone of state and federal accountability in New York include state accountability rules defined by New York State Education Department (NYSED)’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
In January 2018, New York State received approval from the U.S. Department of Education for their ESSA plan. The accountability provisions of ESSA will begin in 2018-19 with data used from the 2017-18 school year.
