MI Lt. Governor Requests ESSA Plan Be Sent Back to Officials

April 28, 2017

Michigan Lt. Governor Brian Calley wrote the U.S. Dept. of Education requesting that the state’s ESSA plan be sent back so officials can “rework [the] plan in order to ensure more accountability for special education students.” In the letter, Calley argued that the state’s “proposed ‘n-size’ for student subgroups, (the minimum number of students for that subgroup to factor into accountability measures at each school), is too high for special education students.”
