Federal Accountability

The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law by President Obama in December 2015, reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and replaces the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. ESSA restores greater flexibility about federal education policy to states and districts while ensuring accountability for the success of all children. Through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) has reaffirmed its focus on strengthening education, ensuring equity for all students, enhancing professional development and more – but it also provides an opportunity to spotlight the OSDE’s commitment to the power of individualism.

A-F Report Cards Under the Every Student Succeeds Act

The Oklahoma Legislature directed the Oklahoma State Board of Education (OSBE) to evaluate Oklahoma’s current school and district accountability system and make recommendations for its future. As a result, the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) held regional meetings across the state and convened the Oklahoma Assessment and Accountability Task Force to deliberate over the many technical, policy, and practical issues associated with implementing an improved assessment system. The 95 Task Force members met four times between August 4 and November 9, 2016.

In June 2016, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed House Bill 3218 (HB 3218), which requires the State Board to address accountability requirements under ESSA which include:

  • A multi-measures approach to high school graduation;
  • A determination of the performance level on the assessments at which students will be provided remediation or intervention and the type of remediation or intervention to be provided;
  • A means for ensuring student accountability on the assessments, which may include calculating assessment scores in the final or grade-point average of a student;
  • Ways to make the school testing program more efficient; and
  • A multi-measures approach to accountability.

Accountability Report

NAEP Accountability

Federal law requires that states and districts, receiving Title I funding, participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reading and mathematics assessments every two years. Schools and students selected to participate in NAEP samples provide important data that will increase the information available to educators and policymakers about the success of their elementary and secondary education programs. NAEP produces data in a number of different subject areas for the nation, participating states, and some urban school districts. The reports and data derived from the NAEP assessment are used for a variety of purposes by education leaders, policymakers, the press, curriculum specialists, teachers, researchers, and others. Visit the NAEP page for more information.
