NY State Dept. of Ed Releases 36 High-Level Concepts Under ESSA

October 18, 2016

The New York State Education Department released a set of 36 high-level concepts to receive feedback on whether they should be incorporated into the state’s application under ESSA. The Department will solicit feedback on the proposed concepts in two rounds. The first round of comments will be gathered from educators, parents, and students at more than 45 Regional State Plan Development meetings being held across the state this month and in early November. Meeting participants will provide feedback on the high-level concepts both at the regional meetings and through a survey that will be used to develop the state’s plan.  After the Board of Regents approves the state’s draft ESSA plan, a general public comment period will be held and will include public regional meetings across the state.
