Comment on Pennsylvania’s Proposed ESSA Consolidated State Plan

by Randy Ziegenfuss and Lynn Fuini-Hetten on August 14, 2017

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaces No Child Left Behind, reauthorizes the nation’s primary education law, and reinforces that law’s commitment to equal opportunity for all students. ESSA provides states with new flexibility in setting long term academic goals for students and schools, and in deciding how to identify and support schools that need improvement. States, including Pennsylvania are required to submit plans to the federal government describing these strategies.

The survey linked below provides an opportunity to share feedback with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) regarding Pennsylvania’s draft ESSA Consolidated State Plan (also linked below). The survey will be open through to August 31, 2017. Your feedback is important as our state plan will impact the learning environment in Salisbury!

You may choose to comment on as many or as few sections as you wish. The survey asks you to provide basic demographic data to inform aggregate analysis of the survey sample; however, all responses are anonymous.
