Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Stakeholder Committee – Call For Participation
The Every Student Succeeds Act(ESSA) replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. ESSA is meant to ensure that all students have equitable access to high-quality educational resources and opportunities, as well as to close educational achievement gaps. As part of the regulations, a stakeholder committee must be formed to provide feedback and input to the resources and decisions made regarding the grant monies. ESSA Stakeholder engagement is a vehicle for bringing together educators and families as well as representatives of the community who have a stake in the law and also bring particular assets and expertise that can support the education of our young people. If you are interested, click here for more details and application to be part of this committee.

Student Loan Information
For many years the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) has prepared a Student Loan Guide to be distributed to New Jersey high school students.  In January 2013 legislation was passed by the New Jersey Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christie requiring HESAA to prepare a similar brochure and directing high schools to annually disseminate it to each student in the 11th and 12th grades.
In accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:71A-35, please see the Student Loan Guide e-booklet link below and a new tool, The Student Loan Game Plan.
