The Every Student Succeeds Act requires all participating states to submit a state plan for review by the United State Department of Education. The state ESSA plan must include details regarding the following required components:
- Challenging State Academic Standards
- Academic Assessments
- Statewide Accountability Systems
School Support and Improvement Activities
There are also “Other Provisions and Assurances”. The entire published Every Student Succeeds Act language can be found here for reference.
The Indiana Department of Education welcomes your comments and ideas related to any part of the Indiana ESSA plan components here below, and hope that you will join us at regional community forums focused on ESSA this fall.
