SED hosting public meetings on state’s draft ESSA plan

The State Education Department is hosting regional public meetings to gather feedback on the state’s draft Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. NYSUT’s Educational and Research Services has prepared talking points. Here are the dates and locations for the upcoming regional meetings.

NYSUT also encourages members to complete SED’s surveyon what indicators of school quality and/or student success should be used to identify schools for improvement under the new federal ESSA.

As you complete the survey, please note some of these indicators may unfairly identify schools based on inequities in resources that they cannot control. The indicators related to staffing are not supported by NYSUT because they would undermine collective bargaining and are not supported by research.
