Opportunity for Public Comment on Pennsylvania’s Proposed ESSA Consolidated State Plan
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaces No Child Left Behind, reauthorizes the nation’s primary education law, and reinforces that law’s commitment to equal opportunity for all students. ESSA provides states with new flexibility in setting long term academic goals for students and schools, and in deciding how to identify and support schools that need improvement. States are required to submit plans to the federal government describing these strategies.

This survey provides an opportunity to share feedback with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) regarding Pennsylvania’s draft ESSA Consolidated State Plan. The survey will be open for a 30-day, federally-required public comment period from August 2, 2017 to August 31, 2017.

Individuals may choose to comment on as many or as few sections as they wish. The survey asks respondents to provide basic demographic data to inform aggregate analysis of the survey sample; however, all responses will be anonymous.

This online survey provides an opportunity for open-ended comments relating to each major section of the plan, listed below, as well as a way to provide additional, written comments.

• Introduction
• Section 1: Long Term Goals
• Section 2: Consultation and Performance Management
• Section 3: Academic Assessments
• Section 4: Accountability, Support and Improvement for Schools
• Section 5: Supporting Excellent Educators
• Section 6: Supporting All Students

Note: For all questions below, a Local Education Agency (LEA) describes a school district or public charter school.
