U.S. Dept. of Ed Releases Feedback on AZ, ND, and VT’s ESSA Plans

August 10, 2017

The Dept. of Education released feedback on Arizona, North Dakota, and Vermont’s ESSA plans. As reported by Education Week, Arizona “will need to change the way that science factors into its accountability system.” North Dakota “needs to do a better job of explaining how student progress on standardized tests—as opposed to straight-up achievement—will factor into school ratings.” While Vermont “needs to clarify how it will pinpoint schools where particular subgroups of students, such as English-language learners and students in special education, are struggling.”
