According to DOE officials the department will continue to review and incorporate feedback until the draft is submitted to the United States Department of Education in April.
The final draft reflects additional feedback received from various education stakeholders, including the Governor’s ESSA Advisory Council, discussion groups and comments submitted by the public.
“Their input and feedback was critical, and those relationships can’t end with this draft,” Secretary of Education Susan Bunting said in a statement. “We must continue to collaborate on this final draft and our work in general. Together we can ensure every child in our state graduates from our public schools prepared for success in life.”
