The Ohio Department of Education wants public input on their plans for ESSA implementation. We need arts educators to get involved!
From the Ohio Department of Education:
Every Student Succeeds Act Webinars and Proposed Stakeholder Meetings
Under the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Ohio will create a plan for how our local, state and federal programs are aligned to help all of our students be successful. The Ohio Department of Education will be seeking your involvement at a series of meetings throughout the state. Everyone is welcome to attend and share their ideas. Please join us at a meeting near you. Additionally, the department will host a series of webinars covering focus areas within ESSA . Participants can learn more about specific topics and share their thoughts through a variety of response options. The Ohio Department of Education is committed to comprehensive and collaborative community engagement leading to the development of our state Student Success Plan. A plan that is deeply rooted in the needs of Ohio’s students, educators and communities requires everyone’s input.
