Secretary Betsy DeVos announced that “all consolidated state plans submitted by 34 states and Puerto Rico under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for the fall deadline were found to be complete and ready for peer review.” DeVos commended “the chief state school officers, governors and stakeholders in these states for their efforts and for embracing ESSA’s flexibility to craft plans that will help meet the unique needs of their students.” Staff and peer reviewers will now examine plans to “ensure compliance with the standards established in ESSA.”
