Help Develop Ohio’s Every Student Succeeds Act State Plan

Release date: 8/22/2016

The Ohio Department of Education is actively engaging with stakeholders, school leaders, teachers and parents as the department works to develop the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. In an effort to reach out to more Ohioans about these important issues, the department created a survey to get feedback on several focus areas within ESSA.

The survey can be found by clicking here.

“With several hundred Ohioans participating in webinars each week, we’re excited by the feedback and constructive comments we’ve received thus far,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “Along with the upcoming regional meetings, this survey provides even more opportunities for Ohioans to give us their insight and help develop our state plan.”

The survey covers several focus areas within ESSA, including accountability measures, school improvement, educator quality and student supports.

Under ESSA, Ohio will create a plan for how local, state and federal programs are aligned to help all students be successful. The Ohio Department of Education is committed to comprehensive and collaborative community engagement leading to the development of the state plan. The department also is seeking Ohioans’ involvement through a series of webinars and meetings throughout the state.
