State Superintendent Sets Up Committees for ESSA Feedback
July 31, 2016
State Superintendent Richard Woods has set up seven committees to gather feedback on ESSA implementation and help write the state plan. Cobb Superintendent Chris Ragsdale and Marietta Superintendent Emily Lembeck were chosen as members of Georgia’s working groups. Ragsdale is serving on the state advisory committee, and Lembeck is a member of the educator and leader development working committee. The six working committees and the advisory committee will work “to get the state in the best position for our teachers and students” as well as make sure the state’s education practices align with the new law’s standards.
