The Georgia Department of Education submitted its ESSA plan to the U.S. Department of Education for approval (September 18). Here is that plan.
No one knows better than you that Georgia has been implementing higher standards in our classrooms for the past several years. Now that we have moved beyond No Child Left Behind and have put the final touches on the states Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan, questions are being asked, What does this mean for Georgias teachers and ultimately their students? and Will there be less federal government oversight and more local flexibility than we saw under NCLB? Time will tell.
In the meantime, we want to be a reliable resource when it comes to the new Act and what it means for you.
