In the Augusta Chronicle, Doug Mesecar and Don Soifer, authors of a recent report from the Lexington Institute, write about the mission, rollout and implementation of ESSA’s Military Student Identifier and “highlighted the compelling work at the Columbia County School District in serving its military-connected students.” The report outlines “a number of innovative practices under way at Columbia County schools,” including how “classroom teachers are able to utilize timely and specific information on student performance, special programs for academic support and enrichment,” and “school supports for children’s social and emotional development.”
