On November 30, 2015, the public first saw the 1,061-page final draft of the next Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorization, now named the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

On December 02, 2015, the House passed ESSA by a vote of 359-64.

On December 09,2015, the Senate passed ESSA by a vote of 85-12.

ESSA is not officially law until President Obama signs the bill.

That is scheduled to happen in short order, on the morning of December 10, 2015.

Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), who joined Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to head up the Senate version of the ESEA reauthorization, offered this glowing statement that was published in The Redmond  Reporter (Washington State) within hours after the Senate vote. In her statement, Murray confirms Obama’s plan to sign ESSA into law one day after the Senate vote:
