USDOE Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Regulations on Accountability, Data Reporting, and Consolidated State Plans

The U.S. Department of Education has released for public comment a set of proposed regulations to give states clarity in rethinking their accountability, data reporting, and consolidated state plans. This marks an important step along the path to implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in a way that allows the law to live up to its potential as a tool for enhancing educational excellence and equity. The term well-rounded education means courses, activities, and programming in subjects such as English, reading or language arts, writing, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, geography, computer science, music, career and technical education, health, physical education, and any other subject, as determined by the State or local educational agency, with the purpose of providing all students access to an enriched curriculum and educational experience. We encourage you and your members to participate in advocating for our profession and our students. MORE INFORMATION
