U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos issued a letter to chief state school officers on ESSA implementation. The letter encouraged states to “continue to move forward” on draft plans and follow the timeline for final submission. DeVos states that she remains “committed to working alongside local education leaders” and will “ensure they have the flexibility to craft education plans that make the most sense for the parents and students they serve.” The Dept. of Education will also provide additional guidance to state’s plans by March 13, 2017
