Draft Overview of Ohio’s State ESSA Plan Released

Release date: 1/19/2017

After a year of engaging with more than 15,000 of Ohio’s educators, parents and community members about their vision for our state’s educational system, the Ohio Department of Education has released the draft overview of Ohio’s State Plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act.

The draft overview can be found by clicking here.

The draft overview provides a framework for the final plan that Ohio will submit in April to the U.S. Department of Education. The plan will cover several important aspects of Ohio’s education system, including Academic Standards, Assessments, Accountability and School Improvement, among others.

The Ohio Department of Education invites the public to review and comment on the overview. The full draft of the plan will be released in early February, with a comment period open through March 6. Input will continue to be incorporated throughout the development of the final Ohio plan.

Ohio’s plan takes a detailed look at the state’s education system and makes important improvements based on the feedback of our stakeholders and requirements in the law.
