Meet ESSA Requirements
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law in 2015, replacing the No Child Left Behind Act, calls for states and school districts to use evidence-based interventions, methods and practices that have been scientifically shown to have positive impacts on student achievement.
BellXcel has an incredibly strong research and evidence base. We have participated in multiple studies that meet ESSA's strict standards, which have been reviewed and confirmed by school districts. By partnering with BellXcel, you can tap federal funding to expand access to evidenced-based learning in your community.
Two independent reviews recently confirmed that BellXcel’s summer and afterschool solutions meet ESSA evidence standards. These reviews highlight BellXcel’s rigorous approach to evaluation and strong outcomes.
RAND Corporation's Investing in Successful Summer Programs, an independent review of summer programs nationwide confirms BellXcel meets the highest levels of evidence — 1 of only 43 summer programs in the U.S. with this distinction.
Research for Action's Afterschool Evidence Guide confirms that BellXcel meets the highest levels of evidence — 1 of only 16 academically-focused programs in the U.S.
