September 18, 2017

Washington state officials announced their ESSA plan on September 18, the federal deadline for submission. “Graduation rates will be 50-percent of the formula,” said state schools chief Chris Reykdal. “We include things now like absenteeism of students, and how they’re performing in the 9th grade, and whether or not they’re getting access to dual-credit courses like Running Start, College in the High School, and these other things.”
