The Delaware Department of Education is sharing draft components of the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act plan for public feedback.

The drafts released Oct. 31 follow the guidance the state has received from the U.S. Department of Education to date and are informed by the input the department received from community members and other education stakeholders at a series of community conversations and discussion groups and through online surveys this fall.

The final plan will be submitted in March 2017.

The public has several opportunities to share feedback and ideas in the coming months. The department will host a second series of community conversations across the state in November and December. More online surveys also will be posted later this fall.

Two ESSA Discussion Groups also continue to meet as does the Governor’s ESSA Advisory Committee. For more information, visit doe.k12.de.us/ESSA. Feedback and questions also can be sent to ESSAStatePlan@doe.k12.de.us.
