SDE: Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

 
Every Student Succeeds Act Survey
 
The Connecticut State Department of Education completed the final draft of its consolidated state plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
 
 
Members of the public are invited to provide feedback on Connecticut's draft ESSA plan through our Every Student Succeeds Act Draft Plan Survey. Encuesta en español.
 
This survey will remain open for public comment until February 27, 2017. Feedback will be used to make changes and improvements to the draft plan. Our goal is to submit the final plan on April 3.
 
In the video below, Commissioner Wentzell discusses the survey and the plan.
 
                                                                 
 
About ESSA
 
In December of 2015, President Obama signed into law the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The title of the reauthorized legislation, which replaces the No Child Left Behind Act, is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The passage of the ESSA provides a much anticipated opportunity to improve outcomes for all students.
 
ESSA requires that states develop plans that address standards, assessments, school and district accountability, and special help for struggling schools. The 2016-17 school year will be a transition period, with full implementation of Connecticut’s state plan under ESSA in the 2017-18 school year.
