At Albert Schweitzer Elementary School, we believe that success for our students can only be achieved when schools and families work together as a team.
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the federal K-12 education law of the United States. ESSA was signed into law in 2015 and replaced the previous education law called “No Child Left Behind.” ESSA extended more flexibility to States in education and laid out expectations of transparency for parents and for communities.
ESSA requires every state to measure performance in reading, math, and science. Each state determines the way students are assessed. Every school in each state must inform parents about their standards and their results.
In this newsletter you will find a link to Pennsylvania’s Core Standards. Additionally, you will find information about school performance at the Future Ready PA Index site. The Future Ready PA Index uses four different approaches in scoring and depicting student progress and performance.
Did You Know About Title I?
- Under ESSA, Title I is the largest federally funded educational program in the United States.
- It provides supplemental funds to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals.
- Title I is designed to help students achieve proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards.
- It provides funds to districts to assist schools with the highest levels of economically disadvantaged children for improving student achievement, staff development, and parent and community engagement.

Assessment is a process of evaluating student performance to determine what content and skills have been mastered. Assessment enables school leaders and educators to make informed decisions about instructional practices and effective pedagogical approaches to maximize student achievement levels. Effective assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Well-designed assessments can give valuable information to teachers, parents, and students.
