Timeline

  • Final ESSA regulations addressing the submission of state plans affect the timeline for California to submit its State Plan. This change has provided an opportunity for the CDE to reexamine its ESSA stakeholder engagement strategy. The ESSA State Plan will be available as a full draft on or before July 2017 for the statutorily required 30-day public comment period. The CDE anticipates presenting the ESSA State Plan for final State Board of Education (SBE) approval at the September 2017 SBE meeting before submitting it to the U.S. Department of Education on September 18, 2017. More detail regarding opportunities for stakeholders to engage in plan development activities will be provided in future SBE information memoranda and agenda items and the ESSA listserv.
