Every Student Succeeds Act Funding (ESSA)
President Obama signed the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), into law on December 10, 2015. The act replaces No Child Left Behind as the federal education legislation that funds and provides the framework for elementary and secondary education in the United States.
School health and physical education have been included in ESSA and as a result, states and school districts will have access to funding for health education and physical education programs.
Here are some quick facts about ESSA - provided by SHAPE America:
