Sunshine State Gets Extended ESSA Revisions Deadline

February 16, 2018

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Florida has received an additional extension to update its ESSA plan. State Education Commissioner Pam Stewart was required to submit revisions by February 16—which was already an extension from the original January 4 deadline—but Stewart asked the U.S. Department of Education the day before the deadline for another reprieve “as the state grapples with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting.”
