Draft ESSA State Plan Public Comment Toolkit

Materials to support the public comment period for the Draft ESSA State Plan.

Welcome to the ESSA State Plan Public Comment Toolkit. The resources below are to help any interested member of the public review the draft ESSA State Plan and provide feedback through the public comment survey. The draft State Plan has been organized and separated by section. For each section, you will find a summary video and section summary. You will also find updates to the draft plan and the public comment survey towards the end of the page.

Information regarding stakeholder meetings taking place during the public comment period is available on the ESSA State Plan Development Opportunities Web page. The CDE is providing a brief presentation (PDF) at these meetings. If you would like to host your own stakeholder event, there are facilitator instructions that include suggestions for promoting the public comment period.

Please note that these materials are based upon the draft ESSA State Plan presented to the State Board of Education on May 10, 2017 and reflect direction received by the Board during its May 2017 meeting. Activities and funding amounts described in the plan are subject to change as state and federal budgets are finalized.
