Policymaker’s Guide to Understanding Your State’s ESSA Plan & Reviews
With 35 state plans responding to the Every Student Succeeds Act now approved, state education agencies are moving from planning to implementation. But stakeholder engagement and collaboration shouldn’t end with approval. This worksheet is intended to help state-level policymakers and other stakeholders begin to dive into the details of their states’ ESSA plans and provide a place to note thoughts, concerns, and ideas. We hope this document is a useful roadmap to drive continued reflection and engagement around state ESSA plans.
