CAP Releases ESSA Implementation Recommendations for States

May 19, 2016

The Center for American Progress released their analysis of ESSA. CAP gave their following recommendations for implementation:

• States should set a vision for their accountability systems and be purposeful about the incentives they create when selecting system indicators;
• States must weigh the trade-offs between simplicity and complexity to create a tailored yet comprehensive system of accountability; and
• States, districts, and schools should increase transparency and clarity of school accountability and rating methodology for communities and families.
