Education Department Publishes Report Card Report for Public Comment

April 23, 2019

Last month, the U.S. Department of Education published a new report—Opportunities and Responsibilities for State and Local Report Cards Under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act—and announced a public comment period ending on April 29. “This document is intended to assist SEAs and LEAs in implementing the report card requirements,” the report notes. “Although SEAs and LEAs may consider this document in developing and disseminating report cards, an SEA or LEA is free to develop alternative approaches and formats that are consistent with applicable Federal statutes and regulations.”
